brain_capillary_endothelial_cells

Brain capillary endothelial cells join tightly together to form the BBB, which separates the brain from the blood and prevents exposure of the CNS to circulating toxins and harmful chemicals. A number of transporters are expressed on the BBB, which prevent therapeutic drugs and toxins from entering the brain, or actively bring nutrients or neurotransmitters into the brain.
