Figure 2

Schematic representation of tight junctions between two adjacent cells. In general, TJs at the BBB and in the CP epithelium are similar, but they express different claudins (that are not shown in this figure). This is probably an important structural difference underlying the lower values of TEER across CP epithelium compared to TEER values across the brain endothelium.
