The role of Galectin-3 in α-synuclein-induced microglial activation [Article]
(BioMed Central, 2014)
Background: Parkinson ’ s disease (PD) is the most prevalent neurodegenerative motor disorder. The neuropathology is characterized by intraneuronal protein aggregates of α -synuclein and progressive degeneration of ...
Magnetofection as a new tool to study microglia biology [Article]
(Medknow Publications, 2019)
Regulation of caspase-3 processing by cIAP2 controls the switch between pro-inflammatory activation and cell death in microglia [Article]
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
The activation of microglia, resident immune cells of the central nervous system, and inflammation-mediated neurotoxicity are typical features of neurodegenerative diseases, for example, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. ...
Deletion of caspase-8 in mouse myeloid cells blocks microglia pro-inflammatory activation and confers protection in MPTP neurodegeneration model [Article]
(Impact Journals, LLC, 2015)
Increasing evidence involves sustained pro-inflammatory microglia activation in the pathogenesis of different neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Parkinson's disease (PD). We recently uncovered a completely novel and ...
Microglia-secreted galectin-3 acts as a toll-like receptor 4 ligand and contributes to microglial activation [Article]
Inflammatory response induced by microglia plays a critical role in the demise of neuronal populations in neuroinflammatory diseases. Although the role of toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) in microglia’s inflammatory response ...
Spatio-temporal activation of caspase-8 in myeloid cells upon ischemic stroke [Article]
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Ischemic stroke (caused by thrombosis, embolism or vasoconstriction) lead to the recruitment and activation of immune cells including resident microglia and infiltrating peripheral macrophages, which contribute to an ...
Neuromelanin activates proinflammatory microglia through a caspase-8-dependent mechanism [Article]
(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background We have uncovered a caspase-dependent (caspase-8/caspase-3/7) signaling governing microglia activation and associated neurotoxicity. Importantly, a profuse non-nuclear activation of cleaved caspases 8 and 3 was ...
Effective Knockdown of Gene Expression in Primary Microglia With siRNA and Magnetic Nanoparticles Without Cell Death or Inflammation [Article]
(Frontiers Media, 2018)
Microglia, the resident immune cells of the brain, have multiple functions in physiological and pathological conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The use of primary microglial cell cultures has proved to be a ...
TET2 Regulates the Neuroinflammatory Response in Microglia [Article]
Epigenomic mechanisms regulate distinct aspects of the inflammatory response in immune cells. Despite the central role for microglia in neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration, little is known about their epigenomic ...
Reformulating Pro-Oxidant Microglia in Neurodegeneration [Article]
In neurodegenerative diseases, microglia-mediated neuroinflammation and oxidative stress are central events. Recent genome-wide transcriptomic analyses of microglial cells under different disease conditions have uncovered ...
