The molecular advances in various aspects of brain endothelial cell function in steady states are considerable and difficult to summarize in one chapter. Therefore, this chapter focuses on endothelial permeability mechanisms in steady states and disease namely vasogenic edema. The morphology and properties of caveolae and tight junctions that are involved in endothelial permeability to macromolecules are reviewed. Endothelial transport functions are briefly reviewed. Diseases with alterations… CONTINUE READING
