It is very well known that as the brain ages, the risk of developing some or other neurological disorders is very common. Scientists from TBSI which is the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute have enlightened on the emerging issue of the process of the brain.
The linking of presence increased the immune cells that are specialised in conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and brain injuries in the brain that have ever happened for the very first time.
They have grounded out a possible unknown way of targeting the therapies aiming at the neurological disorders that are incurred with the prevention of ageing. Nowadays these diseases are coming to every second doorstep to all the people knocking at their old ages and so the medical science was expected to come up with some sort of solution for it.
The collaborated group of researchers from universities came out with a report stating about the microglia in the brain and spinal cord, it is a unique and of its kind of immune cell whose main function is to act as a support to the nerve cells, neurological defending against the microbes clearing the junks and to remove the dying nerve cells by engulfing and eating the all foreign ailments by them.
Coming research indicates that microglia may have different functional stimuli too depending on the occurrence of the specialised cells concerning their molecular and biochemical changes. Further study shows the various types and subtypes of microglia can be differentiated based on a property called autofluorescence.
This is the ability of the cells to emit light of a particular colour after they have successfully absorbed the light of the other, and this phenomenon takes place because of the specific substances inside the cells that let the light be absorbed.
The substances that are stored in the specialised cellular compartments are fat molecules, cholesterol crystals, misfolded proteins cells and metals. One of its leading researchers Mr David Loane stated that with time the brain ages and the materials stored inside the microglia increase autofluorescence.
Harshly this collection of the cellular junk makes it harder for the microglia in performing its fundamental function of collecting the debris or junk in the brain cells and of preventing of neurological injury and neurodegenerative diseases. In the researcher’s study, it was also found that aged animals have a very different aspect of adopting a dysfunctional state which ends up in a long list of problems.
Furthermore, the scientists demonstrated that microglia are also associated with inflammation and were much more pronounced under pathological conditions, such as in genetic risk factors of the models of Alzheimer’s disease and it also stated by the researcher that this cause of environmental exposing oneself to acute traumatic brain injuries in animals accelerates the age of starting and tissue-wide distribution by microglia by increasing oxidative stress damage in the injured animal’s brain.
As a result, the researcher’s evidence is steadily increasing suggesting that the collection of it contributes to all the diseases of ageing and even the prevention of neurodegeneration. If these sub-colonies of microglia are highly inflammatory and deteriorating in the brain, then hitting them could be a new strategy for treating ageing-related diseases.
Pharmacological depletion of microglia in old mice eliminated the AF microglia cells following dysfunction. Thus, By Research AF may reflect a pathological state in ageing microglia associated with a neurological high rate of phagocytosis of the nerve cells and swelled neurodegeneration that can be further accelerated by TBI. Thus, it can be easily and much more profoundly said that this is the main cause of ageing neurological and prevention neurodegeneration
