Five day-old male flies expressing SOD1 proteins in motor neurons (A), glial cells (B) and in motoneurons together with glial cells (C) were treated with 1% H2O2 diluted in 3% sucrose. The results indicate an enhancing effect of H2O2 on mutant SOD1 toxiciy in MNs or glia when compared to driver>UAS-dsod1, but not to driver>CS control. Statistical analysis was performed using a two-tailed ANOVA method in Prizm software and was considered significant if p
