These genes can be grouped into several categories based on their protein function and their involvement in (i) protein homeostasis, such as optineurin [8], valosin-containing protein [9], ubiquilin 2 [10], and TBK1 [11]; (ii) RNA metabolism and function such as TAR DNA-binding protein 43 (TDP-43), fused in sarcoma/translocated in liposarcoma (FUS/TLS) [12], C9orf72 [13,14], matrin 3 [15], and angiogenin [16]); (iii) cytoskeletal dynamics of motor axons such as dynactin subunit 1 [17], profilin 1 [18], and tubulin alpha-4 A chain [19]; (iv) mitochondrial function such as CHCHD10 [20]; and (v) regulation of inflammation such as TBK1 [11].
