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.
