In histological sections of these Fig. 1 Left side: Topography of the blood-brain interface: Difference between capillaries and venule Upper panel: By definition, capillaries lack a “media” of smooth muscle cells. The pericyte (green) is thus separated from the endothelial cells (beige) by a basement membrane (red) only. The outer vascular basement membrane and the one on top of the glia limitans (blue) are fused to a common “gliovascular” membrane. Note the intimate contact of the astrocytic endfeet and the pericytes and endothelial cells which may underlie certain aspects of blood-brain barrier differentiation.
