ACE2 Information: ACE2 Protein, ACE2 Antibody and ACE2 Gene

ACE2 Protein

ACE2 protein function

Carboxypeptidase which converts angiotensin I to angiotensin 1-9, a peptide of unknown function, and angiotensin II to angiotensin 1-7, a vasodilator. Also able to hydrolyze apelin-13 and dynorphin-13 with high efficiency. May be an important regulator of heart function. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10924499, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10969042, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14647384, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24227843}.; (Microbial infection) Acts as a receptor for SARS coronavirus/SARS-CoV. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:14647384, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15452268, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15791205}.; (Microbial infection) Acts as a receptor for Human coronavirus NL63/HCoV-NL63. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15897467}.

ACE2 protein expression

Tissue specificity

Expressed in endothelial cells from small and large arteries, and in arterial smooth muscle cells. Expressed in lung alveolar epithelial cells, enterocytes of the small intestine, Leydig cells and Sertoli cells (at protein level). Expressed in heart, kidney, testis, and gastrointestinal system.


Up-regulated in failing heart.
