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 ...
Neuromelanin activates proinflammatory microglia through a caspase-8-dependent mechanism
(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 ...
Reformulating Pro-Oxidant Microglia in Neurodegeneration
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 ...
