Microglia inhibit astrocyte-mediated neurodegeneration

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Prion diseases are infectious protein-misfolding disorders associated with neurodegeneration and glial activation in the CNS. Microglia have been suggested to play a critical role during prion disease. Mice deficient in microglia Csf1rΔFIRE develop normally. We challenged these mice with infectious prions in order to understand the role of microglia during neurodegeneration.
