Volume-regulated anion channels (VRACs) are of particular importance in regulating the cell volume (CV) and give rise to the swelling-activated Cl- current (I
Experiments were performed in murine microglial BV-2 and primary mouse microglial cells. Patch clamp experiments were performed in BV-2 cells using the amphotericin-perforated method to minimize cytosolic disturbances. Phagocytosis was quantified by scanning electron microscopy.
Following activation of I
The activation of β-adrenergic receptors in microglial cells triggers a cAMP-Epac-dependent and a cAMP-PKA-dependent cascade which affects phagocytosis via modulation of the swelling-activated Cl- current I
