Schematic illustration of endothelial tight junctions and claudin-5 expression in retinal and brain vasculature of zebrafish embryos at 2 dpf and 3 dpf. Four pairs of the central artery express claudin-5 at 2 dpf (red). The figure was adapted from the online data of Dr. Brant Weinstein's lab (zfish.nichd.nih.gov/zfatlas webcite). AMCtA: anterior mesencephalic central artery; MMCtA: middle mesencephalic central artery; PMCtA: posterior mesencephalic central artery; CCtA: cerebellar central artery.
