From: Forced turnover of aged microglia induces an intermediate phenotype but does not rebalance CNS environmental cues driving priming to immune challenge

Differentially regulated pathways and gene ontologies were unaffected by microglial depletion and repopulation. Adult (6–8 weeks old) and aged (16–18 months old) male BALB/c mice were provided diets formulated with vehicle or CSF1R antagonist (PLX5622) for 21 d. After 21 d, all mice were provided vehicle diet for an additional 21 d to allow for repopulation of microglia. After 21 d of repopulation, Percoll-enriched microglia were sorted, and RNA was collected and sequenced. Lists of differentially expressed genes were generated by comparing Aged Control and Aged Repop to Adult Controls (baseMean > 10, Padj < 0.05, and absolute fold change > 1.5) and used for pathway analyses. a Heat map of results from IPA Comparison Analysis of Canonical Pathways, Diseases & Functions, and Upstream Regulators performed on genes differentially expressed in the Aged Control and Aged Repopulation groups compared to Adult Control. All pathways shown were significantly regulated by age (P < 0.05). b Proportions of genes categorized for each GO Biological Process and c GO Molecular Function determined by PANTHER Gene Ontology assessment (n = 6 mice / group)
