Ace (P47820) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis


Ace, Angiotensin-converting enzyme
Enzyme Classification 3.2.1.-
UniProt P47820

Also Known as ACE_RAT, Ace, Dcp1

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. This GPIase activity seems to be crucial for the egg-binding ability of the sperm.
