ACE 17:61554422-61599205

Forward strand gene: angiotensin I converting enzyme

Formerly known as: DCP1

Also known as: CD143, ACE1, ENSG00000159640

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 … Source: UniProt
