The localization of immunoreactive angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) has been investigated at the optical and ultrastructural level with anti-human ACE antibodies in the human kidney and small intestine. In both tissues ACE was found in blood vessels and in extravascular situation in the absorptive epithelial cells of intestinal mucosa and renal proximal tubules. Ultrastructural immunohistochemistry showed that in intestinal and renal proximal tubular cells ACE was prominent in microvilli… CONTINUE READING
