Blood-brain barrier disruption, microglial activation and neurodegeneration are hallmarks of multiple sclerosis. However, the initial triggers that activate innate immune responses and their role in axonal damage remain unknown. Here we show that the blood protein fibrinogen induces rapid microglial responses toward the vasculature and is required for(More)
The thorough characterization of transgenic mouse models of human central nervous system diseases is a necessary step in realizing the full benefit of using animal models to investigate disease processes and potential therapeutics. Because of the labor- and resource-intensive nature of high-resolution imaging, detailed investigation of possible structural(More)
