Drosophila melanogaster angiotensin converting enzyme (Ance) and angiotensin converting enzyme related (Acer) are single domain homologs of mammalian peptidyl dipeptidase A (angiotensin I-converting enzyme) whose physiological substrates have not as yet been identified. We have investigated the in vitro substrate specificities of the two peptidases towards(More)
Ance is a single domain homologue of mammalian angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) and is important for normal development and reproduction in Drosophila melanogaster. Mammalian ACE is responsible for the synthesis of angiotensin II and the inactivation of bradykinin and N -acetyl-Ser-Asp-Lys-Pro, but the absence of similar peptide hormones in insects(More)
