Kinetics of central nervous system microglial and macrophage engraftment: analysis using a transgenic bone marrow transplantation model.


To determine the kinetics of tissue macrophage and microglial engraftment after bone marrow (BM) transplantation, we have developed a model using the ROSA 26 mouse. Transplanted ROSA 26 cells can be precisely identified in recipient animals because they constitutively express beta-galactosidase (beta-gal) and neomycin resistance. B6/129 F2 mice were… (More)
