Spatio-temporal activation of caspase-8 in myeloid cells upon ischemic stroke
(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 ...
The role of Galectin-3 in α-synuclein-induced microglial activation
(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 ...
Distinct Microglial Responses in Two Transgenic Murine Models of TAU Pathology
(Frontiers Media Research Foundation, 2018-11-14)
Microglial cells are crucial players in the pathological process of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Microglial response in AD has been principally studied in relation to amyloid-beta pathology ...
Microglia: Agents of the CNS Pro-Inflammatory Response
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020)
The pro-inflammatory immune response driven by microglia is a key contributor to the pathogenesis of several neurodegenerative diseases. Though the research of microglia spans over a century, the last two decades have ...
Human Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived Neural Cellsas a Relevant Platform for Drug Screening inAlzheimer’s Disease
Extracellular amyloid-beta deposition and intraneuronal Tau-laden neurofibrillary tanglesare prime features of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The pathology of AD is very complex and still notfully understood, since different ...
Chronic stress enhances microglia activation and exacerbates death of nigral dopaminergic neurons under conditions of inflammation
(BioMed Central, 2014)
Background: Parkinson’s disease is an irreversible neurodegenerative disease linked to progressive movement disorders and is accompanied by an inflammatory reaction that is believed to contribute to its pathogenesis. ...
Should we open fire on microglia? Depletion models as tools to elucidate microglial role in health and alzheimer’s disease
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021)
Microglia play a critical role in both homeostasis and disease, displaying a wide variety in terms of density, functional markers and transcriptomic profiles along the different brain regions as well as under injury or ...
The human bone marrow harbors a CD45− CD11B+ cell progenitor permitting rapid microglia-like cell derivative approaches
Microglia, the immune sentinel of the central nervous system (CNS), are generated from yolk sac erythromyeloid progenitors that populate the developing CNS. Interestingly, a specific type of bone marrow-derived monocyte ...
