Detection of Mouse ACE‑2 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of mouse kidney tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.25 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Mouse ACE‑2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3437) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for ACE‑2 at approximately 95 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
ACE‑2 in Mouse Kidney.
ACE‑2 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse kidney using 15 µg/mL Goat Anti-Mouse ACE‑2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3437) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained (red) and counterstained (green). View our protocol for Fluorescent IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.
ACE‑2 in Mouse Kidney.
ACE‑2 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse kidney using Goat Anti-Mouse ACE‑2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3437) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

Detection of Mouse ACE‑2 by Simple WesternTM.
Simple Western lane view shows lysates of mouse kidney tissue, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for ACE‑2 at approximately 141 kDa (as indicated) using 2.5 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Mouse ACE‑2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3437) followed by 1:50 dilution of HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system.

ACE-2, also called ACEH (ACE homologue), is an integral membrane protein and a zinc metalloprotease of the ACE family that also includes somatic and germinal ACE (1). Mouse ACE-2 has about 40% amino acid identity to the N- and C-terminal domains of mouse somatic ACE. The predicted mouse ACE-2 protein sequence consists of 798 amino acids, including a N-terminal signal peptide, a single catalytic domain, a C-terminal membrane anchor, and a short cytoplasmic tail. ACE-2 cleaves angiotensins I and II as a carboxypeptidase. ACE-2 mRNA is found at high levels in testis, kidney and heart and at moderate levels in colon, small intestine and ovary. Classical ACE inhibitors such as captopril and lisinopril do not inhibit ACE-2 activity. Novel peptide inhibitors of ACE-2 do not inhibit ACE activity (2). Genetic data from Drosophila, mice and rats show that ACE-2 is an essential regulator of heart function in vivo (3). In addition, ACE-2 is a key SARS-CoV Spike protein receptor in vivo and has a critical function in acute lung injury (4, 5).
