Localization of angiotensinogen in multiple cell types of rat brain.


Angiotensinogen was localized in 3 cell types in brain using immunohistochemical methods. These locations included subpopulations of neurons in nuclei that co-stain for angiotensin II, subpopulations of astrocytes that make putative contacts with brain microvessels, and cells of the choroid plexus. These findings are consistent with multiple functions for… (More)
