Pericytes are associated with the smallest diameter blood vessels (arterioles, capillaries, and venules) and share their basal membrane with the endothelium. Pericytes are either solitarily associated with the endothelial cell tube or form a single, often discontinuous, cell layer around it.

Larger vessels are formed by multiple layers of smooth-muscle cells, while microvessels consist of endothelial cells that are covered by single pericytes.
