[Regulation of microglial cell function by ATP].


Accumulated evidence suggests that extracellular ATP functions occur in neurons and glial cells in the nervous systems. Besides well-documented roles as a neurotransmitter or neuromodulator, ATP has also been demonstrated to have effects on glial cells. Reports have shown that ATP stimulates microglia to release various biologically active substances, such… (More)
