Using molecular genetic approaches, two forms of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) have so far been identified; a pulmonary form and a testicular form. This study utilized both northern blot analysis and in-situ hybridization to examine the expression of ACE mRNA in the rat brain. Northern blot analysis using oligonucleotide probes specific to the… CONTINUE READING
