ACE (peptidyl-dipeptidase A) is a kind of zinc metallopeptidase, which plays an important role in blood-pressure control and water-salt metabolism. The widely expressed ACE shows the highest content in lung, kidney, heart, gastrointestinal system and prostate.
ACE has two main functions: 1. catalyze and convert angiotensin I into angiotensin II; 2. inactivate bradykinin. Thus, it's the suitable target for the treatment of hypertension, heart failure, diabetes mellitus type 2, diabetes and kidney diseases.
Currently, FineTest has developed the active ACE protein expressed by eukaryotic expression system and uses it in the related Elisa kit.
