The immunofluorescent distribution of ZO-1, a tight junction-associated protein, was studied in murine circumventricular organs. These regions generally express a less restrictive blood-brain barrier than is found in other areas of the CNS. In the remaining brain parenchyma, where a characteristic blood-brain barrier exists, ZO-1 was localized in discrete… CONTINUE READING
