    a "housekeeping" protein is one that is generally produced as a matter of course (it doesn't require some signal regarding conditions in order to turn on the gene and make the protein), because it is generally needed in the cell

    other potential causes mentioned in the article include mitochondrial, "problems with the neurotransmitter glutamate, which seems to overstimulate cells in A.L.S., causing toxicity", and problems with nerve axons.
