Abstract
The gene for adrenomedullin (AM), a multifunctional peptide hormone, is expressed in mammalian renal tissue and has been shown to stimulate renin release. The exact cell source of this peptide and its gene-related partner, proadrenomedullin N-terminal 20 peptide (PAMP), in kidney is still uncertain. In the present study we have identified PAMP-immunoreactive cells in the kidney of different mammalian species, including man, by light microscopy. In addition, these cells have been further studied in mouse kidney by both light and electron microscopic techniques. At the light microscopic level, PAMP immunolabeling is preferentially located in the subendothelial cells of the enlarged glomerular afferent arterioles, that is, in the juxtaglomerular cells. However, these cells do not show immunolabeling for AM. At the electron microscopic level, the immunostaining appears inside the renin-containing secretory granules of the juxtaglomerular cells. These results confirm the direct link between renin and the AM peptide family and provide a morphological basis for studying the potential modulatory function of AM and PAMP in the control of renin activity. In contrast, neither AM nor PAMP immunoreactivities were detected in the kidney of nonmammalian vertebrates, other than in blood vessels of particular species, providing a new phylogenetic difference in the juxtaglomerular apparatus between mammalian and nonmammalian vertebrates.
