Shedding of somatic angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is inefficient compared with testis ACE despite cleavage at identical stalk sites.
The somatic and testis isoforms of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) are both C-terminally anchored ectoproteins that are shed by an unidentified secretase. Although testis and somatic ACE both… Expand
Inhibition by converting enzyme inhibitors of pig kidney aminopeptidase P.
Several inhibitors of angiotensin converting enzyme were also found to inhibit aminopeptidase P, whereas inhibitors of other mammalian aminopeptidases were ineffective. Aminopeptidase P purified from… Expand

Mammalian angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE; EC 18.104.22.168) is one of several proteins that exist in both membrane-bound and soluble forms as a result of a post-translational proteolytic processing… Expand
Obesity and Testosterone Levels in Ghanaian Men With Type 2 Diabetes
IN BRIEF Testosterone plays a vital role in obesity, glucose homeostasis, and lipid metabolism. The aim of this study was to investigate androgen levels and its association with obesity in Ghanaian… Expand
Characterization of a secretase activity which releases angiotensin-converting enzyme from the membrane.
Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE; EC 22.214.171.124.1) exists in both membrane-bound and soluble forms. Phase separation in Triton X-114 and a competitive e.l.i.s.a. have been employed to characterize… Expand
Synergistic effect of PGE1 and the calcium antagonist verapamil in disaggregation of aggregated platelets and inhibition of platelet aggregation induced by PAF-acether or arachidonic acid
Levels of Circulatory Endothelial Progenitor Cells and Gamma Glutamyltransferase in Ghanaians with Cardiovascular Disease
Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play a key role in the vascular pathology of stroke, congestive cardiac failure (CCF) and hypertension. Reduced numbers of circulating endothelial progenitor cells… Expand
