Detection of Human ACE‑2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of NS0 mouse myeloma cell line and human kidney tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human ACE‑2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB9331) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for ACE‑2 at approximately 110 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Angiogensin I Converting Enzyme-2 (ACE-2) is a type I transmembrane zinc protease that cleaves angiotensins I and II to produce vasodilatory and anti-proliferative peptides. The balance between ACE-1 and ACE-2 activity is critical for maintaining cardiovascular, renal, and pulmonary function. ACE-2 isoforms of 75 kDa and 120 kDa are differentially expressed between lung and kidney, respectively, and a shed soluble form is generated by TACE/ADAM17 mediated cleavage. ACE-2 also functions as the cellular uptake receptor for the SARS coronoavirus. Within the extracellular domain, human ACE-2 shares 83% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat ACE-2.
