We have used reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis and insitu hybridization to further define the tissue and cell-specific pattern of expression of the rat kallikrein gene family. rKlk1 gene expression has been unequivocally demonstrated in the rat heart, ovary and testis. Similarly, rKlk3, 4 and 9 gene expression has been demonstrated in the testis/ovary, heart and testis respectively. Insitu hybridization has identified the expression of kallikrein gene family members to specific cell-types in the rat ovary (granulosa cell) and testis (germ cell).
