      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryThis gene encodes an enzyme involved in catalyzing the conversion of angiotensin I into a physiologically active peptide angiotensin II. Angiotensin II is a potent vasopressor and aldosterone-stimulating peptide that controls blood pressure and fluid-electrolyte balance. This enzyme plays a key role in the renin-angiotensin system. Many studies have associated the presence or absence of a 287 bp Alu repeat element in this gene with the levels of circulating enzyme or cardiovascular pathophysiologies. Two most abundant alternatively spliced variants of this gene encode two isozymes - the somatic form and the testicular form that are equally active. Multiple additional alternatively spliced variants have been identified but their full length nature has not been determined.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: P22966 # Converts angiotensin I to angiotensin II by release of the terminal His-Leu, this results in an increase of the vasoconstrictor activity of angiotensin. Also able to inactivate bradykinin, a potent vasodilator. Has also a glycosidase activity which releases GPI-anchored proteins from the membrane by cleaving the mannose linkage in the GPI moiety.| P12821 # Converts angiotensin I to angiotensin II by release of the terminal His-Leu, this results in an increase of the vasoconstrictor activity of angiotensin. Also able to inactivate bradykinin, a potent vasodilator.
      COFACTOR: Binds 1 zinc ion per subunit. & Binds 2 chloride ions per subunit.
      SIZE: 732 amino acids; 83330 Da
      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Angiotensin-converting enzyme, testis- specific isoform, soluble form: Secreted. & Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein.
      TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Spermatocytes, adult testis.
      DOMAIN: SwissProt: P22966
      PTM: Phosphorylated by CK2 on Ser-725; which allows membrane retention (By similarity).
      DISEASE: SwissProt: P12821 # Genetic variations in ACE may be a cause of susceptibility to ischemic stroke [MIM:601367]; also known as cerebrovascular accident or cerebral infarction. A stroke is an acute neurologic event leading to death of neural tissue of the brain and resulting in loss of motor, sensory and/or cognitive function. Ischemic strokes, resulting from vascular occlusion, is considered to be a highly complex disease consisting of a group of heterogeneous disorders with multiple genetic and environmental risk factors. & Defects in ACE are a cause of renal tubular dysgenesis (RTD) [MIM:267430]. RTD is an autosomal recessive severe disorder of renal tubular development characterized by persistent fetal anuria and perinatal death, probably due to pulmonary hypoplasia from early-onset oligohydramnios (the Potter phenotype). & Genetic variations in ACE can influence susceptibility to diabetic nephropathy [MIM:603933]. Diabetic nephropathy is a kidney disease and resultant kidney function impairment due to the long standing effects of diabetes on the microvasculature (glomerulus) of the kidney. Features include increased urine protein and declining kidney function.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P22966 ## Belongs to the peptidase M2 family.| P12821 ## Belongs to the peptidase M2 family.
      MISCELLANEOUS: The glycosidase activity probably uses different active site residues than the metalloprotease activity. & Inhibitors of ACE are commonly used to treat hypertension and cardiac dysfunction.
