The blood-brain barrier acts as an interface between the brain and body through a combination of restrictive mechanisms and transport processes. Substances essential for brain function pass through the barrier either by passive diffusion or by active transport. We report here that [ 125I]-transforming growth factor-β2 (TGF-β2) passes through the blood-brain barrier and blood-nerve barriers, after intravenous, intraperitoneal or intramuscular injections. The entry of the [ 125I]-TGF-β2 to the...[Show more]
