In order to investigate the role of renin angiotensin in the epididymis, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) activity and angiotensin I (AI) and angiotensin II (AII) concentrations were measured in the male reproductive tract and blood serum of the rat. High ACE activity was detected in the rat epididymis, with a major part of the activity being associated with epididymal spermatozoa. When spermatozoa were prevented from entering the epididymis by efferent duct ligation, the ACE activity in the… CONTINUE READING
