1. The blood–brain barrier (BBB) is formed by brain capillary endothelial cells (ECs). There are various cell types, in particular astrocytes, but also pericytes and neurons, located in close vicinity to the capillary ECs which may influence formation and function of the BBB. Based on this consideration, this paper discusses various aspects of the influence of the surrounding cells on brain capillary ECs with special focus on the role of astrocytes. 2. Based on the morphology of the BBB… CONTINUE READING
