Dr. Chihara,

There is quite a bit of information about the link between familial ALS 
and the SOD1 superoxide dismutase gene in the Online Mendelian Inheritance 
in Man (OMIM) database, maintained as part of the Genome Data Base at 
Johns Hopkins.  If you have access to a World Wide Web client, such as NCSA 
Mosaic, point it at the URL:

http://gdbwww.gdb.org/

If you have access to Gopher, point it at:

gopher.gdb.org

If e-mail is your only option, you may search OMIM using the GDB/OMIM e-mail 
server.  Send a message to mailserv at gdb.org with the single word "help" in 
the BODY of the message (no subject line is required) to obtain additional 
information.

As always, further information on GDB and OMIM may be obtained by sending 
mail to GDB User Services at help at gdb.org.
