It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease are a growing burden on our society. Understanding and treating these common diseases is one of the major current challenges for the biomedical field.
In Neurodegeneration: Methods and Protocols , experts in the field tackle this challenge and present cutting-edge analytical and technological approaches to study the mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative processes. Organizes into five sections, chapters detail protocols for isolating and culturing cells from the nervous system, production and use of animal models, characterization of cell death, analytical tools to study disease mechanisms, and therapeutic approaches for neurodegeneration.
Authoritative and easily accessible, Neurodegeneration: Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal guide to both novice and professional researchers in the field of neurodegeneration. I heartily recommend this book to university and research institute communities working on neurodegeneration and regeneration.

Representative images of cortical a-h and hippocampal i-p transplanted cells demonstrate complex process ramification and typical tiling. Transplanted iPS-microglia and iPS-microglia 2. In order to increase cost-efficiency during iPS-microglia 2. Surprisingly, this analysis demonstrated that IDE2, regardless of concentration, impaired normal microglial proliferation and thus was not studied further.
To compare these new samples with our iPS-microglia, fetal and adult microglia, and other cell types, we generated a correlation matrix Fig. Based on the hierarchical clustering within our correlation matrix Fig. Alternatively, IDE1 could potentially provide increased specificity by only targeting smad2 signaling.
Interestingly, gene ontology analysis of these differentially expressed genes revealed only five pathways that were significantly enriched between these two populations of microglia Fig. In recent years, the importance of microglia in brain development, homeostasis, and disease has become increasingly clear. Because microglia have been implicated in many neurological diseases and injuries including neurodegeneration, traumatic brain injury, and developmental disorders, several groups have developed methods to try to make these cells more accessible for neurological research.
Until recently, microglia could only be studied through brain biopsies, postmortem analysis, or in animal models. Although mouse models of neuroinflammation have been extremely useful in uncovering important new findings, many differences exist between human and murine microglia. For example, one recent study identified several co-regulated myeloid gene expression modules that occur in human AD, but do not occur in AD mouse models [ 22 ].
Likewise, many differences exist between the murine and human complement system that is closely linked to neurodegenerative diseases including AD [ 6 ]. At least two microglial-expressed AD risk genes, CR1 and MS4A4A, have no murine ortholog, further highlighting the challenges of studying the role of microglia in human disease using mouse models alone. To study human microglia, some highly skilled groups have turned to human biopsy material. Working closely with neurosurgeons, these researchers have developed methods to isolate human microglia from brain tissue removed during a surgical resection of a brain tumor or intractable epileptic foci [ 5 , 7 , 23 ].
Using this approach, researchers have uncovered exciting data and greatly advanced our understanding of the human microglial transcriptome. Another strategy for studying human microglia involves the isolation of microglia or their nuclei from postmortem brain tissue. Using this approach, researchers have uncovered important age-related differences in the human microglial transcriptome [ 26 ].
Still, it remains unclear whether the agonal state that precedes death, inflammatory co-morbidities, or post-mortem delay might influence microglial gene expression. Interestingly, animal models of Pneumonia exhibit significant changes in brain microglial activation state [ 29 , 30 ]. Thus, it is likely that this and other common infectious co-morbidities can complicate the interpretation and analysis of postmortem-isolated human microglia. Given the considerable challenges with isolation and study of postmortem or biopsied human microglia, several groups, including our own, developed protocols which utilize the power of stem cells to produce human microglia in vitro [ 8 ]—[ 13 ].
These methods have begun to enable more detailed mechanistic studies of human microglia by allowing controlled experimental treatments, drug testing, and genetic manipulation. However, the currently existing protocols are relatively complicated and can be challenging to adopt, especially for groups with little prior stem cell experience. Thus, to address this challenge we developed and validated the greatly simplified and refined method presented here. In comparing this new method to our previously published differentiation protocol, we confirm that iPS-microglia 2. In addition, iPS-microglia 2.
To further investigate and characterize iPS-microglia 2. While each substrate exhibited differential degrees of phagocytosis, these levels were equivalent between our previously described iPS-microglia and iPS-microglia 2. Lastly, to determine whether iPS-microglia 2. Taken together, these functional and in vivo experiments further support the conclusion that microglia generated via these two methods are virtually identical. In summary, we provide detailed methods and validation of a greatly simplified protocol to produce significantly increased numbers of pure human microglia.
The RNA-sequencing, functional validation, and transplantation studies presented here clearly demonstrate that highly pure populations of human iPS-microglia can be generated via this greatly simplified protocol. We anticipate that this streamlined and highly reproducible protocol will enable many more interested researchers to now study human microglia, leading to further breakthroughs in this field.

The initial plating density is critical as higher density impairs mesoderm differentiation and lower density decreases yield. Thus one can plate iPSCs at 2—3 different densities and select the wells on day 0 that have optimal density to proceed with. On day 3, carefully remove all media by tilting the plate to one side and aspirating from the edge. On day 10 and again on day and 12, non-adherent cells may be collected. However, because the cells are not being sorted for purity, the collection of non-adherent cells must be carefully completed.
It is crucial to thaw cytokines immediately before use. Throughout the differentiation of HPCs to microglia, these cells will predominantly grow non-adherently. Cytokines are diluted to the concentrations listed above before adding to conditioned medium. Do not fully remove media during the microglial differentiation as the cells secrete paracrine cytokine signals and will not properly differentiate upon removal of those.
On day 28 cells collected for RNA sequencing or use for transplantation or functional assays. If necessary, cells can be maintained for 1—2 additional weeks via media supplementation as above, although longer-term culture is not advised. RNA integrity was measured using the Bioanalyzer Agilent Each sample was then sequenced in the Illumina HiSeq platform. BBDuk was used to trim adapters and filter out poor quality reads [ 31 ]. Reads were aligned to the GRCh. An FDR cutoff of 0.
Working with Brain and Spinal Tissues
Visualizations were constructed in part using R in addition to the Genialis visual informatics platform app. Gene ontology analysis was performed using EnrichR. Phagocytic activity of iPS-microglia was examined using the the Amnis Imagestream Millipore to combine immunofluorescence and flow cytometry. IDEAS software was used to generate masks of internalized signal substrate within CD45 and percent of cells with internalized substrates were calculated as well as mean fluorescent intensity which remained constant for each cell type.
All animal procedures were conducted in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the National Institutes of Health and the University of California, Irvine Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee. Immunofluorescent sections were then visualized and captured using an Olympus FX confocal microscope. Images represent confocal Z-stack taken with equivalent laser and detection settings.
