Isolated organ preparations represent valuable models for biomedical research, provided that the functional and morphological integrity of vascular and parenchymal compartments is preserved. In this investigation, we have studied the molecular organization of the cerebral microvessels in the isolated guinea-pig brain maintained in vitro by arterial perfusion, a preparation previously proposed as a model of blood-brain barrier (BBB). Using lectin cytochemistry and immunohistochemistry, we… CONTINUE READING
