Dual Role of CD 38 in Microglial Activation and Activation-induced Cell

Abstract

Microglia, the resident immune cells of the central nervous system, are normally quiescent but become activated after infection or injury. Their properties then change, and they promote both repair and damage processes. The extent of microglial activation is regulated, in part by activation-induced cell death (AICD).
