Microglia as a Source and Target of Cytokine Activities in the Brain

  • Uwe-Karsten Hanisch


Cytokines are regulatory proteins serving cellular communication. Released for auto- and paracrine short-distance signaling, membrane-associated for cell-cell interaction, or being distributed through body fluids to carry biological information to remote targets, these small proteins serve a variety of functions relating to the growth, survival, differentiation or the activities of virtually every cell type.
