Isolation of Infiltrating Leukocytes from the Spinal Cord of Mice
Authors:  Julia M. Martinez Gomez, Stephan Gasser and Herbert Schwarz, date: 05/20/2013, view: 6129, Q&A: 0
The infiltration of leukocytes into the central nervous system (CNS) is a common feature of many neuroinflammatory diseases such as multiple sclerosis, and also occurs during certain microbial infections such as by West Nile Virus. Here, we ...
