    ..Thus, induction of ViMs by tissue macrophage remodeling may become a framework for new strategies to activate immune-mediated reserves against infection in immunocompromised hosts. ..
  2. Murray P. Obesity corrupts myelopoiesis. Cell Metab. 2014;19:735-6 pubmed publisher
    ..Nagareddy et al. (2014) show that adipose cells locally activate IL-1? in macrophages in part through the alarmin S100A8/A9, which stimulates bone marrow myelopoiesis to perpetuate nonresolving inflammation. ..

    ..The results suggest that T. gondii and the ROP kinases can be used to probe immune signaling pathways. ..

    ..Our results show macrophage polarization in cancer is dynamic and dependent on the balance between TNF and IL-13, thus providing a strategy for manipulating TAMs. ..

    ..While elimination of the TB bacilli is often the goal of any anti-TB therapy, host-directed approaches must also account for the possibility of immunopathologic damage to the lung. ..
  6. Murray P. Macrophage Polarization. Annu Rev Physiol. 2017;79:541-566 pubmed publisher
    ..Here, I assess the current state of knowledge about macrophage polarization and enumerate the major questions about how activated macrophages regulate the physiology of normal and damaged tissues. ..

    ..Finally, we briefly discuss the characterization of macrophage heterogeneity in humans. ..

    ..Thus, death pathway modulation defines the development, survival, and function of myeloid suppressor cells. ..

    ..Arginine deprivation-induced cell cycle arrest was mediated in part by Rictor/mTORC2, providing evidence that this nutrient recognition pathway is a central component of how T cells measure environmental arginine. ..

    ..Manipulation of the p38α-TTP axis in macrophages has significant effects on the growth of tumors and therefore represents a means to manipulate inflammation in the tumor microenvironment. ..
