They can bind to receptors located on the liver or spleen or the nodose ganglion and trigger neural firing from these sites, which can then signal the CNS.33 They can also interact directly with BBB receptors to induce cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) inflammatory signalling within the brain parenchyma.34,35 There is also evidence that they are produced in CNS glial cells.36
