BioVision Inc Angiotensin I Converting Enzyme Activity (ACE1) Assay Kit (Fluorometric): Angiotensin I Converting Enzyme Activity (ACE) Assay Kit (Fluorometric). Sensitive, simple assay kit for quantitating ACE1 activity. 100 assays
Manufacturer: BioVision Inc K227100
Angiotensin I converting enzyme (ACE1, EC: 184.108.40.206), a dipeptidyl carboxypeptidase, is part of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) that controls regulation of blood pressure by cleaving the C-terminal dipeptides of angiotensin I and bradykinin. It is found on the luminal surface of vascular endothelial cells, especially in pulmonary tissues. Elevated levels of ACE1 are found in patients suffering from sarcoidosis, leprosy, hyperthyroidism, acute hepatitis, primary biliary cirrhosis, diabetes mellitus, multiple myeloma, osteoarthritis, amyloidosis, Gaucher’s disease, pneumoconiosis, histoplasmosis and miliary tuberculosis. BioVision’s ACE1 Activity Assay Kit utilizes an active ACE1 to cleave a synthetic o-aminobenzoyl peptide (Abz-based peptide) substrate to release a fluorophore. The released Abz can be easily quantified using a fluorescence microplate reader. This assay kit is simple, rapid and can detect ACE activity as low as 10 mU in biological samples
