Lipopolysaccharide Aggravates Cerebral Pathology in B10.PL-derived CD1-/-,2m-/-, TCRα-/-, and TCR-/- Knockout Mice
Abstract:Adult B10.PL-derived immunological genes knockout mice injected with 100 g lipopolysaccharide (LPS) showed severe hydrocephalus and meningitis. A consequence of the hydrocephalus is pineal hyperplasia, sponginess of periventricular parenchyma, gliosis and, at the last stage of hydrocephalus formation, disappearance of the ependymal layer and the Gomori-positive subependymal astrocytes. Possible mechanisms for the aggravation of cerebral pathology induced by LPS are discussed.
