We report the isolation and characterization of a putative angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) in Drosophila, called Race. General interest in mammalian ACE stems from its association with high blood pressure; ACE has also been implicated in a variety of other physiological processes including the processing of neuropeptides and gut peristalsis. Mammalian ACE is a membrane associated zinc binding protease that converts angiotensin I (A I) into angiotensin II (A II). A II functions as a potent… CONTINUE READING
