Morphometric analysis: area and shape. a, c, e, g, i The area of the vesicles is shown with a box diagram (left panel). The box represents 25 and 75 percentiles. The horizontal line represents the mean. b, d, f, h, j The shape factor (circularity) describes the shape of adjacent vesicles. Values are presented as mean ± SEM, n > 9. Statistical analysis; Difference was analysed by one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s posthoc test. All values were considered statistically significant at *p ≤ 0.05, **p ≤ 0.01, ***p ≤ 0.001 between the cell lines (bEnd.3 vs. hCMEC/D3) and at #p ≤ 0.05, ##p ≤ 0.01, ###p ≤ 0.001 compared to the primary PBEC
