|Formulation||100 µl of antibody in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||ACE Antibody (CT) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||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.|
|Cellular Location||Angiotensin-converting enzyme, soluble form: Secreted|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed, with highest levels in lung, kidney, heart, gastrointestinal system and prostate. Isoform Testis-specific is expressed in spermatocytes and adult testis|

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is a carboxy-terminal dipeptidyl exo-peptidase that converts Angiotensin I to the potent vasopressive hormone, Angiotensin II. There are two isoforms of ACE, the pulmonary ACEP and the testicular ACET. ACEP is a glycoprotein expressed in vascular endothelial cells of the lung, liver, adrenal cortex, pancreas, kidney and spleen. The ACET isoform is expressed exclusively in adult testis by developing sperm cells, specifically, late pachytene spermatocytes. Additionally, ACE inactivates bradykinin, a vasodepressor peptide, and is involved in fluid/electrolyte homeostasis. Although it bears significant sequence homology to ACE, ACE2 shows a more restricted pattern of expression. ACE is expressed ubiquitously throughout the vasculature while ACE2 is expressed only in cardiac, renal and testicular cells.
