Adrenomedullin (AM) and proadrenomedullin N-terminal 20 peptide (PAMP) are two recently discovered hypotensive peptides translated from the same message transcript (preproAM mRNA). In this article we report the presence of AM, PAMP, and their mRNA in human and rat prostate and of AM receptor mRNA in rat prostate. PreproAM mRNA was found in the epithelium of normal human and rat prostate glands by in situ hybridization. In humans, it was mainly expressed in the basal cells. In rat, its… CONTINUE READING
