The special components of the BBB include capillary walls of endothelial cells, the basal membrane, and the perivascular layer of astrocytic end-feet. The BBB structures comprise a large surface area of 12–18 m2 in adult humans for exchange of humoral and cellular factors across this barrier (Abbott et al. 2010). The capillary wall consists of a monolayer of non-fenestrated endothelial cells which form the functionally most important part of the BBB (Fig. 3) (Süssmuth et al. 2008). Where the endothelial cells overlap, their cell membranes are connected to each other by tight junction protein complexes known as zonulae occludentes.
