New article from Sierra Lab on microglia and phagocytosis in Biorxiv
Microglia actively remodels adult hippocampal neurogenesis through the phagocytosis secretome
The members of the Laboratory of Glial Cell Biology of Achucarro have just uploaded in Biorxiv a new article on the role of microglial phagocytosis in hippocampal neurogenesis.
This work in a collaboration between research groups in Achucarro and abroad, and states that phagocytosis is not merely a passive process of corpse removal but has an active role in maintaining adult hippocampal neurogenesis.
Have a look at it, it is worth reading!
