The peculiar characteristics of the amino acid sequence of angiotensin I-converting enzyme, as determined by cDNA cloning of the human endothelial enzyme.


The angiotensin-I converting enzyme (ACE) is a membrane bound zinc metallopeptidase of the vascular endothelial cell. Recently, the complete amino-acid sequence of human ACE has been determined by protein sequencing and cDNA cloning in endothelial cell libraries. The ACE is encoded from a 4.3 kb transcript and comprises 1,306 amino acids. The molecule… (More)
