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 ...
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 ...
