Long-lived Macrophages Found in Intestine

Macrophages are not just the vacuum cleaners of the immune system. They also support other cells. These long-lived macrophages in the intestines of mice (in green) make contact with the nerve cells of the gastrointestinal tract (in red). The macrophages provide growth factors for the nerve cells. The nerve cells die off without the macrophages. Credit: TARGID - KU Leuven.
