Pial and cortical microvessels possess many blood-brain barrier (BBB) properties in common, including impermeability to electron dense tracers, high transendothelial electrical resistance and specialised endothelial cell ultrastructural features. To compare pial and cortical microvessels further, a developmental, immunocytochemical study was undertaken of 4 BBB markers in the rat: OX-47, EBA, GLUT-1 and s-laminin. The appearance of the markers was monitored from embryonic d 16, to postnatal and… CONTINUE READING
