For a barrier to exist, the intercellular space need be maintained and this is accomplished by the organization of the tight junction (TJ) complex. The multi-molecular TJ complex forms a belt at the apical portions of cells and is best divided into three groups: (i) integral TJ proteins that form strands which bridge the intercellular space and consist of proteins such…
