Paracellular space between the endothelial cells of the BBB is protected by an extensive network of tight junctions, consisting of transmembrane proteins that include occludin, claudin, and junction adhesion molecule (JAM), as well as cytoplasmic proteins, specifically zonulin-1 (Z01), zonulin-2 (Z02), and zonulin-3 (Z03).
