Friedreich’s Ataxia

Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA or FA) is an autosomal-recessive genetic disease caused by mutations in the FXN gene on chromosome 9, which makes a protein called frataxin. 

Axol cell lines derived from Friedreich’s Ataxia patients and familial and unaffected controls are excellent models for investigating this rare inherited disease that causes progressive nervous system damage and movement problems.

Axol now offers made-to-order human iPSC-derived sensory neurons or cardiomyocytes derived from Friedreich’s Ataxia patients.
