Adrenomedullin (AM) is a novel hypotensive and vasodilator peptide. We previously examined the localization of AM in human, rat, and porcine tissues using a polyclonal antibody against synthetic human AM[40–52]. We demonstrated that AM is widely distributed in the endocrine and neuroendocrine systems, but not in the heart, kidney, or blood vessels, although high levels of AM mRNA were detected in the latter tissues. In this study, we further investigated the distribution of AM by using two… CONTINUE READING
