Whereas spaces between adjacent peripheral endothelial cells allow small molecules and ions to diffuse freely through the capillary wall, adjacent endothelial cells in cerebral capillaries abut against each other and the cells are completely sealed together by continuous tight junctions of high electrical resistance (1000 ohm cm–2) or more). These high resistance junctions present an effective barrier, even to ions. This means that all substances entering or leaving the brain must pass through two plasma membranes and cytoplasm of the endothelial cells rather than between the cells.

Each villus is covered by an epithelium composed of a single layer of columnar absorptive cells (enterocytes) interspersed occasionally with mucus-secreting goblet cells. Undifferentiated cells in the epithelium of the intestinal glands (crypts) proliferate and migrate upwards to replace enterocytes and other cells that are continuously being sloughed off from the tip of the villus into the intestinal lumen. During migration, the cells mature and the enzymes associated with the cells increase in activity.
