The idea that CNS ramified microglia are quiescent has been challenged by studies that show that microglia without the classic signs of activation can be phagocytic and appear with shorter, thicker ramifications. These semi-activated cells may constitute a form of microglia that has not been previously recognized in neuropathological conditions and may contribute to the pathology and dysfunction in these disorders. This study investigated the expression of CD 163, a cell surface marker whose… CONTINUE READING
