Microglies

Un événement commun se produit dans maintes pathologies du système nerveux : des cellules microgliales, qui sont des sentinelles chargées de surveiller, se muent en combattantes.  Cellules immunitaires du système nerveux, les microglies ingèrent et détruisent des agents pathogènes et des cellules nerveuses lésées. Bien que ce processus soit crucial dans l’organisme, on savait jusqu’à présent très peu au sujet des mécanismes moléculaires d’activation des microglies.

Microglia

In many pathologies of the nervous system, there is a common event - cells called microglia are activated from surveillant watchmen into fighters.  Microglia are the immune cells of the nervous system, ingesting and destroying pathogens and damaged nerve cells. Until now little was known about the molecular mechanisms of microglia activation despite this being a critical process in the body.
