Nano-Thermometer Takes Temperature Inside Cells

Rice University chemists modified BODIPY molecules to serve as nano-thermometers inside cells. The chart on the left is a compilation of fluorescent lifetime micrographs showing the molecules' response to temperature, in Celsius. At right, the structure of the molecule shows the rotor, at bottom, which is modified to restrict 360-degree rotation. Credit: Meredith Ogle/Rice University

Evidence has shown that astrocytes can also actively promote neurodegeneration, inflammation, and neurological diseases. Now, a team has shown that a specific astrocyte sub-population can do the opposite, instead serving a protective, anti-inflammatory function based on signals regulated by the bacteria that reside in the gut.
