    ..These data suggest that basal, but not evoked, NMDAR activity regulates gene expression in part through HDAC4, and, that HDAC4 has neuroprotective functions under conditions of low NMDAR activity. ..

    ..Gene expression profiles indicate multiple states of microglial activation in neurodegenerative disease settings, which might explain the disparate roles of microglia in the development and progression of AD pathology. ..

    ..These data link three genetic risk factors for AD and reveal a possible mechanism by which mutant TREM2 increases risk of AD. VIDEO ABSTRACT. ..
