Macrophages in the Human Body Book Excerpt:

Through recent research, there has been a significant number of findings involving the biology of macrophages. Beyond the 1st line of defense, macrophages have several specific characteristics across different tissues, organs, and systems. Macrophages comprehend a heterogeneous phagocytic population with wide range phenotypes, and tissue-specific functions, such as bone resorption, extracellular matrix production, red blood cells and bacteria removal, among others. Through innate immune receptors macrophages can modulate several pathways that culminate in the production of various types of inflammatory mediators such as chemokines, cytokines, oxygen reactive species, and lipid mediators which ultimately altered the behavior of other cells. Moreover, environment signals modify and induce metabolic reprograming that it alters phenotype and functions. Macrophages in the Human Body: A Tissue Level Approach presents a current overview of the diversity of macrophages across multiple human body systems, their phenotype, function and metabolic characteristics. It covers translational aspects where there is research support to indicate the therapeutic potential. Covers translational aspects where there is research support to indicate potential therapeutic potential Aims at presenting a current overview of the diversity of macrophages across multiple human body systems, their phenotype, function and metabolic characteristics Introduces Macrophages generally and dive into the organ/tissue/specific representations covering their phenotype, function, and metabolic characteristics Brings updated aspects of macrophages biology

The M2 Macrophage Book Excerpt:

Macrophages are core components of the innate immune system. Once activated, they may have either pro- or anti-inflammatory effects that include pathogen killing, safe disposal of apoptotic cells or tissue renewal. The activation state of macrophages is conceptualized by the so-called M1/M2 model of polarization. M2 macrophages are not simply antagonists of M1 macrophages; rather, they represent a network of tissue resident macrophages with roles in tissue development and organ homeostasis. M2 macrophages govern functions at the interfaces of immunity, tissue development and turnover, metabolism, and endocrine signaling. Dysfunction in M2 macrophages can ruin the healthy interplay between the immune system and metabolic processes, and lead to diseases such as insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and type 1 and 2 diabetes mellitus. Furthermore, M2 macrophages are essential for healthy tissue development and immunological self-tolerance. Worryingly, these functions of M2 macrophages can also be disrupted, resulting in tumor growth and autoimmunity. This book comprehensively discusses the biology of M2 macrophages, summarizes the current state of knowledge, and highlights key questions that remain unanswered.

Regulation of Lipid Metabolism in Macrophages by Long chain Metabolites of tocopherol Book Excerpt:

With only two years away from the 100th anniversary of the discovery of vitamin E as an essential nutrient in 1922, we have still more questions than answers concerning its significance for human health. During the past hundred years, vitamin E research was characterized by great hopes but also bitter disappointments, which finally led to a strong decline of interest in this research area. However, vitamin E research is currently experiencing a scientific 'renaissance', which is among others attributed to the unrevealing of vitamin E metabolism in humans and to the elucidation of biological functions of the newly formed metabolites. Since their initial determination in human serum, especially the long-chain metabolites (LCMs), i.e. the first metabolites formed during the hepatic degradation of vitamin E, appeared as a class of molecules with putative relevance in the human body. Driven by a small community of ambitious scientist, research on these compounds has made great progress over the last decade, leading to the establishment of the LCMs as an acknowledged area of vitamin E research. As one of the founding members of the LCM community, the work of our group is predominantly focused on the advance of this new and promising field of vitamin E research. Hence, the ten manuscripts included in this thesis also contribute to the progress of key areas in the field of LCM research, i.e. elucidation of biological functions, identification of signaling pathways and the comparison of LCM functionality with their vitamin precursors. Despite of this great progress on fundamental areas of LCM functionality, their exact modes of action as well as their significance for human health are still a puzzle waiting to be solved. Especially the lack of data on LCM physiology in a living organism represent a great limitation of current and the major challenge of future investigations.
