Vessel isolation and nuclei extraction for sequencing used to profile vascular and perivascular brain cell types

A team of researchers from multiple institutions in the U.S. and Germany has developed a way to create a molecular map of the human blood-brain barrier. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the group describes how they created their map and what it revealed about disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. The group has also published a Research Briefing regarding their work in the same journal issue.
