Bone marrow-derived myeloid progenitors in the leptomeninges of adult mice

Koeniger T, Bell L, Mifka A, Enders M, Hautmann V, Mekala SR, Kirchner P, Ekici AB, Schulz C, Wörsdörfer P, Mencl S, Kleinschnitz C, Ergün S, Kuerten S (2021) Bone marrow-derived myeloid progenitors in the leptomeninges of adult mice. Stem Cells 39(2):227-239. doi: 10.1002/stem.3311

Summary: This report confirms the presence of myeloid progenitors at the meningeal border of the brain and lays the foundation to unravel their possible functions in CNS surveillance and local immune cell production. Compared to bone marrow transfer after whole-body irradiation, chimerism developed more slowly in the CD45-SAP (biotinylated anti-CD45 mixed with Streptavidin-ZAP) model and only reached around 50% in the blood myeloid compartment 15 weeks after transplantation.
