An aminopeptidase system, which may help control levels of circulating neuropeptides, probably exists (66). The isolation of proteins from capillaries with inherent phosphoprotein phosphatase activity suggests that reversible phosphorylation of membrane-bound proteins is involved in carrier regulation (67). Evaluation of the permeability/area product has suggested that a two-compartment system of plasma to brain is not sufficient to explain the BBB, and a multiple uptake compartment may exist (68).
