Macrophages can be induced by a variety of factors to change their phenotype and functions. M1 and M2 macrophages play converse roles during inflammation or other diseases. However, the mechanism and function of M1 and M2 macrophages are still not clear. This study aims to identify the different molecules and functions by analyzing the RNA-seq data. The GSE189354 was created by the Illumina HiSeq 4000 (Mus musculus). The KEGG and GO analyses indicated the Phagosome and Hematopoietic cell lineage are the major biological processes between M1 and M2 macrophages. Moreover, we further identified ten molecules including Il6, Il1b, Tlr2, Myc, Fn1, Itgax, Cxcl10, Ccl5, Cxcr4, and Pparg. Therefore, our study may provide novel knowledge of innate immunity.
