The blood-brain barrier (BBB) isolates the central nervous system from the blood. The BBB is mainly composed of capillary endothelial cells, which normally block nonadherent circulating leukocytes in the bloodstream, but permit their transmigration into neighboring tissues following an inflammatory stimulus. Many adhesion molecules are known to be necessary for this recruitment of leukocytes. The expression of these adhesion molecules in brain-derived microvascular endothelial cells can be… CONTINUE READING
