Astrocytes exert many active roles in brain homeostasis, potentially including the regulation of immune reactions. They possess a substantial aptitude for plasticity and, indeed, functional and phenotypic changes are frequently encountered in reactive gliosis observed in brain injuries. The significance of reactive astrocytes is still poorly defined, but it is clear that these cells are an important source of cytokines in inflamed brain. How tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and TNF-receptor family… CONTINUE READING
