What are the membrane proteins answerable for delivery of particular substrates? What are the molecular signs that reason glucose transporter gene expression to be 20 to a hundred instances better in mind endothelial cells in vivo than in vitro? What roles do pericytes, delicate muscle cells and basement membrane have in developing or holding blood-brain delivery features? Are mind vascular delivery platforms chargeable for edema following harm? Are transporter platforms regulated through receptor-mediated occasions? Do hormones or neuromodulators control transporter expression? what's the molecular mechanism during which plasma proteins input the extravascular house? Are transporters asymmetrically dispensed among the luminal and abluminal endothelial telephone membranes? Can prodrugs or pharmacologic brokers be designed as substrate analogs and be dropped at the significant anxious procedure through latest transporters or receptors? Can new and helpful transporters be brought into the mind vasculature?
