TGFβ1 modulates glial cell inflammatory activationGlial cells activation profile determines neuronal functional outcome and survival. TGFβ1 participates in the modulation of glia-mediated cytotoxicity and radicals production. We found that TGFβ1 and IFNγ show reciprocal regulation of MAPKs and STAT1, modulating IFNγ-induced superoxide and NO production by glial cells. MAPK phosphatase MKP1 was critical for the inhibitory effect of TGFβ1. We identified a potential therapeutic target to modulate glial activation in neurodegenerative diseases
