In brain,theincreased microglial cells resulted into the formation of microglial nodules, while in lungs alveolar septa was widened with increased infiltration of the inflammatory cells including macrophages.
Clq is a member of the complement cascade, a group of immune system proteins that calls in microglial cells to gobble up synapses or cells.
On day 12, these brain-cell cultures contained ~70-80% neurons (stained by anti-NeuN or anti-MAP2 antibodies), 15-25% astrocytes (stained by anti-GFAP antibody), and 3-7% microglial cells (stained by anti-CD68 antibody).
In the CNS it is generated by microglial cells, activated by pro-inflammatory cytokines or beta-amyloid peptide (beta-A), and by neurons in three different situations: hyperactivity of glutamate neurotransmission, mitochondrial dysfunction and depletion of L-arginine or tetrahydrobiopterin.

Confocal imaging of microglial cell dynamics in hippocampal slice cultures.
Early studies have documented that aging and amyloid promote microglial cell senescence and more recent evidence showed that A[sz] can promote the senescence of neural stem/progenitor cells in adult mice, affecting forebrain progenitor and hippocampal neurogenesis,[sup][19],[20] and can initiate the senescence response in astrocytes recently.
