Abstract:  Lipopolysaccharide (LPS), the major proinflammatory component of gram‐negative bacteria, is well known to induce sepsis and microglial activation in the CNS. On the contrary, the effect of products from gram‐positive bacteria especially in areas devoid of blood–brain barrier remains to be explored. In the present study, a panel of antibodies, namely, OX‐6, OX‐42 and ED‐1 was used to study the response of microglia/macrophages in the pineal gland of rats given an intravenous LPS or… Expand
