The blood-brain barrier is formed by the cerebral capillary endothelial cells, joined together by tight junctions. These cells express the general endothelial cell markers as well as specific markers found on endothelial cells forming physiological barriers such as gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase, the glucose transporter Glut1 and the neutral amino-acid… CONTINUE READING
