    ..This study demonstrates that GW0742 treatment has a prominent anti-inflammatory effect in 5XFAD mice and suggests that PPARδ agonists may have therapeutic utility in treating AD. ..

    ..Thus, nuclear receptor agonists increase MerTK and Axl expression on plaque-associated immune cells, consequently licensing their phagocytic activity and promoting plaque clearance. ..

    ..These data indicate that ABCA1-induced lipidation of ApoE is necessary for the ability of bexarotene to clear hippocampal soluble A? and ameliorate cognitive deficits. ..

    ..The TLR-mediated microglial response has beneficial roles in stimulating phagocytosis as well as detrimental roles in the Abeta-stimulated release of neurotoxic products. ..

    ..2del mice exhibit anxiety-like behaviors and impaired memory. Our findings provide evidence of ERK dysregulation, developmental abnormalities in neurogenesis, and behavioral impairment associated with the 16p11.2 chromosomal deletion. ..

    ..These findings establish that ERK signaling regulates maintenance of progenitor cells required for development of the dentate gyrus. ..

    ..In addition, we examine how TREM2 affects the function of the brain immune cell populations in which it is expressed throughout disease progression to understand possible mechanisms underlying its differential impacts on pathology. ..
