Abstract: Based on these findings, the FGP cells were different from pericytes in their localization and distribution. Some roles of FGP cells in cerebral metabolism are discussed.

“…Cerebral capillaries, the identified site of O 2 exchange, consist of endothelial cells and astrocyte end-feet resting on the intervening basal lamina matrix (ECM) (del Zoppo, 1994). Pericytes and histiocytes also contribute to this complex (Ookawara et al, 1996). Krogh and others proposed a limit to O 2 diffusion for a hypothetical capillary in the central nervous system (CNS) (Quistorff et al, 1977).…”

“…Whether PVMs exist in nonmusculated vessels has not been reported. Although Ookawara et al did mention the possible existence of PVMs surrounding venules, they only identified PVMs surrounding vessels processing continuous or discontinuous smooth muscle layer, excluding the possibility of capillaries . As an important complement to the field, our group proves the presence of PVMs in both peri‐arteriole space and peri‐venule space (Figure B) by showing PVMs surrounding both musculated arterioles and nonmusculated venules.…”

“…Although Ookawara et al did mention the possible existence of PVMs surrounding venules, they only identified PVMs surrounding vessels processing continuous or discontinuous smooth muscle layer, excluding the possibility of capillaries. 15 As an important complement to the field, our group proves the presence of PVMs in both peri-arteriole space and peri-venule space ( Figure 1B) by showing PVMs surrounding both musculated arterioles and nonmusculated venules. Subsequent cell counting revealed more peri-arteriole PVMs than peri-venule PVMs in both cortical and subcortical regions in mouse brain, but no difference if normalized to vessel length ( Figure 1C).…”
