Tight junctions form a narrow, continuous sealthat surrounds each endothelial and epithelial cell atthe apical border, and act to regulate the movement ofmaterial through the paracellular pathway. In the mammary gland, the tight junctions of thealveolar epithelial cells are impermeable duringlactation, and thus allow milk to be stored betweennursing periods without leakage of milk components from the lumen. Nonetheless mammary epithelial tightjunctions are dynamic and can be regulated by a… CONTINUE READING
