Basic Molecular Events Underlying Transendothelial Transport in Brain Capillaries
dibutyryl (dibu) cAMP increases permeability and pinocytosis in brain capillaries9,
adenylate cyclase could be found in brain microvessels histochemically11,
histamine receptors — mainly of H2-type — are linked to the capillary adenylate cyclase as detected by biochemical measurements14,
the presence of guanylate cyclase was found in brain capillaries by means of histochemistry and biochemical measurements15.
