#Disruption of the blood−brain barrier in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome

Neuroimmune dysregulation is implicated in neuropsychiatric disorders including schizophrenia. As the blood−brain barrier is the immunological interface between the brain and the periphery, we investigated whether this vascular phenotype is intrinsically compromised in the most common genetic risk factor for schizophrenia, the 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22qDS). Blood−brain barrier like endothelium differentiated from human 22qDS+schizophrenia-induced pluripotent … Continue reading #Disruption of the blood−brain barrier in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome
