Nat Immunol. Ulcerative colitis involves loss of protective barrier to infection by commensals and pathogenic bacteria and is characterised by persistent influx of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) and macrophage-rich chronic inflammation, accompanied by tissue destruction and fibrosis. TREM2 lipid sensing sustains the microglial response in an Alzheimer’s disease model. Some scientists believe this macrophage replacement may contribute to aging. Satoh T, Nakagawa K, Sugihara F, Kuwahara R, Ashihara M, Yamane F, Minowa Y, Fukushima K, Ebina I, Yoshioka Y, et al. The cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway: a critical review. PubMed  Pathogens Dis. In this review, we describe macrophage phenotypic heterogeneity in different tissue environments, drawing particular attention to organ-specific functions. For their participation in the immune reaction, the macrophages … Neurotoxic reactive astrocytes are induced by activated microglia. APC, including macrophages, do extend cell processes into the gut lumen, to sample microbial flora and their products, which elicit immune responses in the case of infectious pathogens and are closely associated with high turnover of epithelium in crypts. Immunity. Neuroscience. Tissue macrophages constitute a distributed mononuclear phagocyte cellular system (MPS), contributing to the body’s responses to physiologic changes and to infectious challenge; thus, the MPS is comparable to the nervous and endocrine systems, in that it is adaptable, regulated and able to perform trophic [1] as well as defence functions, locally and systemically. Ferroportin, important for iron export from Kupffer cells, hepatocytes and enterocytes, is inhibited by hepcidin [63]. Adrenergic nerves govern circadian leukocyte recruitment to tissues. Hume DA, Halpin D, Charlton H, Gordon S. The mononuclear phagocyte system of the mouse defined by immunohistochemical localization of antigen F4/80: macrophages of endocrine organs. Monocyte recruitment is also important in the host response to metabolic, atherogenic and neoplastic stimuli, contributing to wound repair and fibrosis [18, 19], angiogenesis [20] and tumour growth. One of the characteristics of tissue macrophages is their ontogenic and phenotypic diversity. Both resident and recruited cells contribute to degeneration and repair through their secretory and phagocytic activities [87, 88]. Traditionally, the identification of macrophages in tissues depended on morphology, histologic staining and intravital labelling with phagocytic particles. Identification of resident macrophages in renal medullary and cortical interstitium and the juxtaglomerular complex. Cell Res. As a group they have the ability to ingest not only other cells but also many other microscopic particles, including … Rates of utilization and fates of glucose, glutamine, pyruvate, fatty acids and ketone bodies by mouse macrophages. More microglia are found in gray than in white matter. Diez-Roux G, Banfi S, Sultan M, Geffers L, Anand S, Rozado D, Magen A, Canidio E, Pagani M, Peluso I, et al. Neural reflex pathways in intestinal inflammation: hypotheses to viable therapy. Hume DA, Gordon S. Mononuclear phagocyte system of the mouse defined by immunohistochemical localization of antigen F4/80. Extrinsic stimuli such as the microbiome and pathogens can induce a spectrum of modular changes in gene expression, depending on time and place; these require an interplay between extrinsic and intrinsic mechanisms, including cytokine regulation, selective adhesion, receptor signalling and import of transcription factors to accessible euchromatin. A complement-microglial axis drives synapse loss during virus-induced memory impairment. Inflammatory bowel diseases affecting both the small and large intestine promote extensive recruitment of monocytes and activation of macrophages. MARCO), apoptotic cells (for example CD36, SR-A, TIM4) and circulating ligands; for example, CCR2 and CX3CR1 are receptors for the monocyte/macrophage chemokines MCP-1 and fractalkine, respectively, for growth promoting and regulatory cytokines, for example, CSF-1 and angiopoietins, (Tie-2), and CD163 for clearance of injurious haptoglobin–haemoglobin complexes. Tissue-resident macrophages originate from yolk-sac-derived erythro-myeloid progenitors. A lineage of myeloid cells independent of Myb and hematopoietic stem cells. 1b, c, Additional file 1: Figure S11, Additional file 1: Figure S12, and Additional file 2: Table S20). They can be extremely elaborate and there is wide variation in the length and complexity of branching of the processes. Complement receptors on a non-macrophage population of follicular cells with a distinctive dendritic morphology contribute to the interactions of B lymphocytes with antigen-presenting cells (APC) in germinal centres, the site of B lymphocyte proliferation and maturation in response to infection. J Exp Med. The dual nature of macrophage functions, host protection versus tissue injury, is maintained in a fine balance; broadly, macrophage phagocytosis, clearance and secretion contribute to innate and adaptive defences against infection and underpin the process of inflammation, while the same processes, but with distinct secreted signals, restore tissue homeostasis and promote subsequent repair. Miller JC, Brown BD, Shay T, Gautier EL, Jojic V, Cohain A, Pandey G, Leboeuf M, Elpek KG, Helft J, et al. Immunity. [ citation needed ] "Reticuloendothelial system" is an older term for the mononuclear phagocyte system, but it is used less commonly now, as it is understood that most endothelial cells are not macrophages . The cartoon depicts important steps in the development of monocytes and tissue-resident macrophages. Finally, monocyte and macrophage recruitment and pro-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties are selectively and potently downregulated by glucocorticosteroids, with the risk of enhancing susceptibility to infection. Chronic immune cell aggregates can give rise to macrophage-rich granulomas, containing multinucleated giant cells as a result of monocyte/macrophage fusion. J Cell Biol. PubMed Central  These cells are highly effective at eating and digesting large particles including dead cells and debris, and microorganisms such as bacteria. Macrophages are also instrumental in shaping developing organs and repairing tissues during life. 2016;17(1):18–25. PubMed  2011;32(7):315–20. Ann N Y Acad Sci. 4), stromal macrophages at the centre of haematopoietic clusters continue to support the differentiation of erythrocytes and also myeloid leukocytes, including monocytes, by unknown surface and secreted mediators. The F4/80 antigen [36] was particularly useful to map their presence in different body compartments of the mouse [37]. Morris L, Graham CF, Gordon S. Macrophages in haemopoietic and other tissues of the developing mouse detected by the monoclonal antibody F4/80. Ganz T. Macrophages and iron metabolism. 5). (2016) propose that this diversity develops "at home"-within those organs-after the recruitment of a common precursor that had not made prior commitments to diversity. Immune cell promotion of metastasis. Nat Immunol. Keshav S, Chung P, Milon G, Gordon S. Lysozyme is an inducible marker of macrophage activation in murine tissues as demonstrated by in situ hybridization. Platelets, smooth muscle cells, macrophages and fibroblasts all contribute to plaque stability, thromboembolism and plaque rupture.

Cronan MR, Beerman RW, Rosenberg AF, Saelens JW, Johnson MG, Oehlers SH, Sisk DM, Jurcic Smith KL, Medvitz NA, Miller SE, et al. Monocytes contribute to osteoclast multinucleation and also generate functional dendritic cells upon culture in GM-CSF, with or without IL-4. Microbiol Spectrum. The oxygen-rich environment may generate ligands for these scavenger receptors. In different tissues, macrophages have special names, such as intestinal macrophages in the gut, Kupffer cells in the liver, microglial cells in the brain, and osteoclasts in bone. Article  Uterus and embryos or organs (liver, spleen, lungs) from fetuses were obtained from pregnant PRRSV negative sows at different days of gestation (20-35, 50-60, 70-80, 114) and the Sn(+) and CD163(+) macrophages were quantified. 2016;64(11):1801–40.

PubMed  2016;352(6286):712–6. In situ analysis underlined the importance of microanatomical niches in promoting phenotypic diversity and functional specialisation in pre- cise tissue microenvironments. As macrophages polarize in local environments, M1 and M2 macrophages may coexist in different organs and may differentially affect asthma and obesity, two comorbid diseases where polarized macrophages contribute to their pathogenesis. Intracellular stores can exceed Kupffer cell degradative capacity, resulting in lipid foam cell formation and ferritin accumulation. Following injury and a range of neurodegenerative diseases, a subset (A1) of neurotoxic reactive astrocytes is induced by activated microglia through secretion of IL-1alpha, TNF and C1q, a component of the classic complement cascade; A1 astrocytes lose their neuronal survival, outgrowth, synaptogenesis and phagocytic activity and induce the death of neurons and oligodendrocytes [78].

Foetal liver stromal macrophages facilitate erythropoiesis by poorly characterised trophic interactions [41]. Embryonic and adult-derived resident cardiac macrophages are maintained through distinct mechanisms at steady state and during inflammation. … 2016;119(7):853–64. In situ analysis underlined the importance of microanatomical niches in promoting phenotypic diversity and functional specialisation in precise tissue microenvironments. These stromal macrophages express non-phagocytic adhesion molecules, a divalent cation-dependent haemagglutinin and the sialic acid recognition receptor Siglec1 (CD169), which retain these committed haematopoietic cells for poorly defined trophic support, before they are ready for release into the circulation. elife. 2014;156(6):1223–34. Radially branched cells are found throughout the neuropil. Examples. Cell. Gordon, S., Plüddemann, A. Tissue macrophages: heterogeneity and functions. Camera lucida drawing courtesy of L.J. In this review, we draw attention to their heterogeneity and broader trophic properties, conferred by the potential to express distinct sets of specialized surface and intracellular receptors that enable them to interact with other cells both locally and remotely, and support their viability, growth and specialised functions throughout the body, contributing to organogenesis and tissue repair. 1991;174(5):1049–58.
