Restricted expression of pathogenic TDP-43 in astrocytes causes non-cell-autonomous motor neuron death in transgenic rats. As revealed by microarray assay, pathogenic TDP-43 in astrocytes preferentially altered expression of the genes encoding secretory proteins. Whereas neurotrophic genes were down-regulated, neurotoxic genes were up-regulated. Therefore, TDP-43 pathogenesis is associated with simultaneous induction of neurotoxic genes and repression of neurotrophic genes in astrocytes.
