Microglia Turned On

Visualizing microglia in brain tissue with a fluorescence turn-on substrate

20-May-2019

Part of the immune system in the brain is made up of so-called microglia cells. Korean and Singaporean researchers have now developed a fluorescent probe that specifically labels this type of macrophage. The cells were visualized in cell culture and in the live brains of rodents. As detailed in ...
