Heterogeneous distribution of angiotensin I-converting enzyme (CD143) in the human and rat vascular systems: vessel, organ and species specificity.

Abstract

Angiotensin I-converting enzyme (kininase II, ACE, CD143) availability is a determinant of local angiotensin and kinin concentrations and physiological actions. Limited information is available on ACE synthesis in peripheral vascular beds. We studied the distribution of ACE along the human and rat vascular tree, and determined whether the enzyme was… (More)
