Microglia adjust to micropatterned structures. A. Primary mouse microglia are cultured on plastic dishes and subjected to immunofluorescence and confocal analysis with phalloidin (green) plus P2Y12 receptors antiserum (red) and Hoechst (blue), scale bar = 50 μm. B-C. Primary microglia are cultured on pillar microstructures subjected to fluorescence and confocal analysis with phalloidin (green) plus Hoechst (blue), scale bar = 20 μm (B), or immunofluorescence with paxillin (red), scale bar = 10 μm (C). D. Primary mouse microglia are cultured on line-grating geometries and subjected to fluorescence and confocal analysis with phalloidin (green) plus Hoechst (blue), scale bar = 20 μm.
