Resveratrol can reduce the production of NO and induction of NOS isoforms such as iNOS and can inhibit the activity of iNOS activating enzymes by affecting oxidative stress and nitrosative in microglial cells (de la Lastra & Villegas, 2007).
interactions with RAGE at the blood-brain barrier and in neuronal and microglial cells, play potentially major roles in amyloid plaque formation, neuroinflammation and chronic neural dysfunction all hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease.

But the team found that microglial cells, which prowl the brain for damaged cells and debris, had also become more active in sleep-deprived mice.
In brain,theincreased microglial cells resulted into the formation of microglial nodules, while in lungs alveolar septa was widened with increased infiltration of the inflammatory cells including macrophages.
32) Lyn tyrosine kinase, a member of Src-family kinases (SFKs), is an important molecule of fibronectin/integrin signaling in microglia, as microglial cells lacking Lyn fibronectin fail to cause the upregulation of P2X4R gene expression.

The objectives of this study were to determine a) the deposition and retention of Ag in the nasal cavity following inhalation exposure; b) the timing for Ag translocation and retention/clearance in the OB; and c) whether the presence of Ag in the OB affects the activity of microglial cells, the resident macrophages of the OB and the brain.
