Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) activity was measured by a radiochemical assay in 30 specific areas of the rat brain stem. ACE activity is unevenly distributed, with a 60-fold difference between the lowest and the highest activity. The area postrema exhibits the highest activity. The substantia nigra (pars reticulata), the locus coeruleus, the areas A1… CONTINUE READING
