    Brain tumours repurpose endogenous neuron to microglia signalling mechanisms to promote their own proliferation

    Kelda Chia et al.
    P2ry12-mediated microglial interactions stimulate the proliferation of brain tumour initiating cells.

    Microglial depletion disrupts normal functional development of adult-born neurons in the olfactory bulb

    Jenelle Wallace et al.
    Adult-born neurons in the olfactory bulb that develop in the absence of microglia have a higher density of small spines but weaker excitatory inputs and reduced responses to sensory stimuli.

    The role of microglia and their CX3CR1 signaling in adult neurogenesis in the olfactory bulb

    Ronen Reshef et al.
    During adult neurogenesis in the olfactory bulb, microglia regulate the elimination (pruning), formation, and maintenance of synapses on newborn neurons, contributing to the functional integrity of the olfactory bulb circuitry.

    Microglial transglutaminase-2 drives myelination and myelin repair via GPR56/ADGRG1 in oligodendrocyte precursor cells

    Stefanie Giera et al.
    A combined approach of unbiased proteomics, biochemistry, genetics, and transgenic animal models reveals that GPR56/ADGRG1 regulates myelin formation and repair by interacting with its microglial-derived ligand transglutaminase 2.

    Absence of TGFβ signaling in retinal microglia induces retinal degeneration and exacerbates choroidal neovascularization

    Wenxin Ma et al.
    TGFβ signaling to retinal microglia is central to the regulation of neuroinflammatory responses relevant to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness in the developed world.

    Microglia contribute to circuit defects in Mecp2 null mice independent of microglia-specific loss of Mecp2 expression

    Dorothy P Schafer et al.
    In mouse models of Rett Syndrome, global loss of the Mecp2 gene induces microglia to engulf excess synapses, while microglia-specific loss or gain of Mecp2 has little impact on disease.

    Microglial SIRPα regulates the emergence of CD11c+ microglia and demyelination damage in white matter

    Miho Sato-Hashimoto et al.
    A cell-cell contact between microglial SIRPα and CD47 on neighboring cells is a critical module for phase conversion of microglia in the brain white matter and controls demyelination.

    Fibrillar Aβ triggers microglial proteome alterations and dysfunction in Alzheimer mouse models

    Laura Sebastian Monasor et al.
    APPPS1 microglia express disease-associated proteomic signatures of Alzheimer's disease earlier, compared to the APP-KI, and these differences correlate with the levels of fibrillar Aβ and impaired microglial phagocytic function.

    The microbiota protects from viral-induced neurologic damage through microglia-intrinsic TLR signaling

    D Garrett Brown et al.
    Immune stimulation from the microbiota prevents neurological damage associated with viral infection of the central nervous system.

    Zebrafish macrophage developmental arrest underlies depletion of microglia and reveals Csf1r-independent metaphocytes

    Laura E Kuil et al.
    Embryonic and definitive macrophages require colony-stimulating factor 1 receptor, whereas non-hematopoietic metaphocytes that resemble macrophages do not, explaining the relative high numbers of putative macrophages in Csf1r-deficient zebrafish.
