BACKGROUND Immunocytochemical studies have revealed that all components of the renin-angiotensin system are widely distributed in human tissues yet the information on the gene expression of the renin-angiotensin system in various types of cell remains scarce. OBJECTIVE We explored the presence of a local renin-angiotensin system in human kidney. METHODS We sought to determine the presence of messenger RNA (mRNA) encoding for renin, angiotensinogen, and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) in… CONTINUE READING
