Blood-brain Barrier Components?

The blood-brain barrier is not a single barrier, but a composite of many systems that act to
control the entry of substances from the blood to the brain:
1. Capillary endothelial cells linked by tight junctions and expressing specialized uptake
systems for particular metabolic substrates (e.g., glucose, amino acids)
2. A prominent basement membrane between endothelia and adjacent cells
3. Pericapillary astrocytes with end-feet adjacent to capillaries
A similar system exists for the choroidal epithelium (blood-cerebrospinal fluid [CSF]
