Protein Comments
In situ hybridisation studies of the rat brain show RAMP3 mRNA to be located predominantly in the thalamus [4].

Immunochemistry shows RAMP3 to be present in the human middle meningeal, middle cerebral, pial and superficial temporal arteries [5].

Northern blotting shows mouse RAMP3 mRNA to be located predominantly in the brain, as well as weaker expression in the heart and kidney [2].
