Human ACE2 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human ACE2 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human ACE2 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
AngiotensinI-converting enzyme 2(ACE 2) is a protein belongs to the angiotensin-converting enzyme family of dipeptidyl carboxydipeptidases and has considerable homology to human angiotensin 1 converting enzyme. By sequence similarity to a sequence in GenBank, this gene is mapped to Xp22.2. This secreted protein catalyzes the cleavage of angiotensin I into angiotensin 1-9, and angiotensin II into the vasodilator angiotensin 1-7. The organ- and cell-specific expression of this gene suggests that it may play a role in the regulation of cardiovascular and renal function, as well as fertility. In addition, the encoded protein is a functional receptor for the spike glycoprotein of the human coronaviruses SARS and HCoV-NL63.
