Cerebral pericytes constitute an essential component of the blood‐brain barrier (BBB) and are involved in blood vessel assembly. Recently, we reported on the induction of a BBB‐specific enzyme expressed by cerebral pericytes (pericytic aminopeptidase N/pAPN) in coculture with cerebral endothelial cells. We completed this in vitro BBB system by adding astrocytes to these mixed cultures of endothelial cells and pericytes. Under these triculture conditions, endothelial cells and pericytes… Expand
