def: "Maintaining the structure and function of the blood-brain barrier, thus ensuring specific regulated transport of substances (e.g. macromolecules, small molecules, ions) into the brain, and out of the brain into the blood circulation." [GOC:aruk, GOC:bc, GOC:bf, GOC:sl, PMID:20080302, PMID:30280653]
comment: Homeostasis and maintenance processes are regulatory processes, therefore, regulation child terms, such as: regulation of maintenance of blood-brain barrier, should not exist for these terms. nInstead, for capturing regulation at the blood-brain barrier, consider using the part_of child term: regulation of blood-brain barrier permeability.
