The discovery of angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE-2) has revealed a far more complex enzymatic cascade that may influence the renin-angiotensin system within the kidney, specifically the expression of the functional products angiotensin II (Ang II) and Ang-(1-7). The regulation of this critical system involved in blood pressure control must now encompass the integral relationship of ACE and ACE-2 activities.
