Endothelin (ET) was originally identified as a vasoactive peptide biosynthesized in vascular endothelial cells. Because ET has also been found in the brain as a neuropeptide, it has been thought to belong to the group of brain-vascular peptide hormones. To date, type A and type B receptors for ET have been found. To elucidate the topographic distribution of type A receptor (ET-AR) in the brain, we raised a specific antibody to the C-terminal (64 amino acids) peptide of rat ET-AR and… CONTINUE READING
