The molecular components that form the tight junction strands in endothelial cells include the protein Claudin-5. The mechanisms to regulate microvessel permeability to hydrophilic molecules and water include modulation of these molecular components to change both the number and distribution of the strands and the size and frequency of breaks in the junctional strands.
