AbstractVascular basement membrane (BM) stabilizes brain vessels and inhibits endothelial cell cycle. Cerebral ischemia causes BM breakdown with the loss of structural BM components including collagens and laminins and subsequent endothelial cell activation and proliferation 1. However, the fate and role of BM proteoglycans and non-structural BM constituents, including SPARC (BM-40, osteonectin), in ischemic blood-brain barrier (BBB) pathophysiology remains unknown.
