Specificity

This product is specific for human Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2). ACE2 is a carboxypeptidase which is expressed in a range of tissues including heart, kidney, testis and the gastrointestinal system.

ACE2 is a homologue of ACE (Angiotensin-converting enzyme 1), although it has a distinct catalytic activity. ACE2 catalyzes the cleavage of active angiotensin II into angiotensin 1-7, which may counteract the effects of ACE by increasing vasodilatation.

A recent discovery is that ACE2 serves as the cellular entry point for the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) virus, functioning as a receptor for the SARS Spike protein.

Storage/Stability

Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
