Cells and fibers in the rostroventral and dorsocaudal parts of the AN, the internal zone of the median eminence and PLH showed immunoreactive material for antiangiotensin II. Angiontensin II fibers originating in the anteroventral part of the AN, crossing median eminence (ME) and infundibular stem and arriving at the PLH were also observed. ER -
