Specific depletion of resident microglia in the early stage of stroke reduces cerebral ischemic damage

Li T, Zhao J, Xie W, Yuan W, Guo J, Pang S, Gan WB, Gómez-Nicola D, Zhang S (2021) Specific depletion of resident microglia in the early stage of stroke reduces cerebral ischemic damage. J Neuroinflammation 18(1):81. doi: 10.1186/s12974-021-02127-w

Summary: The role of activated microglia during the development of ischemia remains controversial. The authors investigate the function of reactive microglia in the early stage of ischemic stroke. The results showed that specific depletion of microglia resulted in a significant decrease in ischemic infarct volume and improved performance in motor ability 3 days after stroke.

Usage: Mac-1-SAP is used to specifically eliminate microglia. Hippocampal slices from mouse were incubated with 13-nM Mac-1-SAP for 3 to 7 days.
