Identification of functionally distinct macrophage subpopulations in Drosophila

We reveal the existence of functionally-distinct macrophage subtypes in Drosophila

Simu-dependent clearance of dying cells regulates macrophage function and inflammation resolution

Macrophages encounter and clear apoptotic cells during normal development and homeostasis, including at numerous sites of pathology. Clearance of apoptotic cells has been intensively studied, but the effects of macrophage–apoptotic cell interactions …
