An immunocytochemical study on co-localization of cathepsin B and atrial natriuretic peptides in secretory granules of atrial myoendocrine cells of rat heart.


To examine localization of cathepsin B, a representative lysosomal cysteine protease, in atrial myoendocrine cells of the rat heart, immunohistochemistry at the light and electron microscopic level was applied to the atrial tissue, using a monospecific antibody for rat liver cathepsin B. In serial semi-thin sections, immunoreactivity for cathepsin B and… (More)
