Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) is Zn2+ metallopeptidase which plays an important role in blood pressure homeostasis in mammals and other vertebrates. Homologues of ACE involved in the biosynthesis of mammalian peptide hormones have also been identified in the insects, Musca domestica, Drosophila melanogaster and Haematobia irritans exigua.
