Zona occludens is also known as tight junctions
1. Tight junctions, or zonula occludens, are the closely associated areas of two cells whose membranes join together forming a virtual impermeable barrier to fluid.
2. It is a type of junctional complex, joining the cytoskeletons of the adjacent cells.
