We have identified the sites of transcription of the apolipoprotein D (apoD) gene in the rabbit by in situ hybridization. We show here for the first time that 1) apoD mRNA production does not correlate with the sites of steroid hormone production in adrenal glands nor male genital tissues; and 2) the expression of the apoD gene is clearly higher in white than in gray matter throughout the central nervous system (CNS). Specifically, apoD mRNA was abundant near blood vessels and was expressed… CONTINUE READING
