Teaching Tip of the Week

Did You Know...? Teaching Partners

The University Center for Teaching and Learning (UCTL) has recently formed a program aiming to link faculty members with experts from their Center. Teaching Partners is meant to be a two-way street: faculty partners get to hear the latest research and technologies first and faculty participants give ideas and feedback to help enhance UCTL services. The group meet twice a term for lunchtime meetings and stay in touch online throughout the year. All faculty are invited and encouraged to join this new community by completing the online form available on their website. ►Read more

    Paper:  Temporal Tracking of Microglia Activation in Neurodegeneration at Single-Cell Resolution

    Authors: Hansruedi Mathys, Chinnakkaruppan Adaikkan, Fan Gao, Richard M. Ransohoff, Aviv Regev, Li-Huei Tsai

    Abstract: Microglia, the tissue-resident macrophages in the brain, are damage sensors that react to nearly any perturbation, including neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Here, using single-cell RNA sequencing, we determined the transcriptome of more than 1,600 individual microglia cells isolated from the hippocampus of a mouse model of severe neurodegeneration with AD-like phenotypes and of control mice at multiple time points during progression of neurodegeneration. In this neurodegeneration model, we discovered two molecularly distinct reactive microglia phenotypes that are typified by modules of co-regulated type I and type II interferon response genes, respectively. Furthermore, our work identified previously unobserved heterogeneity in the response of microglia to neurodegeneration, discovered disease stagespecific microglia cell states, revealed the trajectory of cellular reprogramming of microglia in response to neurodegeneration, and uncovered the underlying transcriptional programs.
