Description

Product name:
Human Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2)

Product description:
Recombinant Human Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) soluble form (Q9BYF1|19-615) produced in Nicotiana benthamiana by Agrobacterium-mediated transient expression.

Description

Host species: Nicotiana benthamiana

Molecular weight: 71.2 kDa (+ Glycosylation)

Tag: C-terminal 10His-tag

Uses: For in vitro research use only. Not for human in vivo or therapeutic use.

Relevance: Essential counter-regulatory carboxypeptidase of the renin-angiotensin hormone system that is a critical regulator of blood volume, systemic vascular resistance, and thus cardiovascular homeostasis1. Converts angiotensin I to angiotensin 1-9 (anti-hypertrophic)2 and angiotensin II to angiotensin 1-7 (vasodilator and anti-proliferation)3. Acts as a receptor for human coronaviruses SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2, as well as human coronavirus NL63/HCoV-NL634.
