Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) exists either in the soluble form (sACE2) or attached to the membrane of cells (mACE2). sACE2 is a soluble protein which acts as an enzyme in the body. It converts angiotensin I to angiotensin II. Two kinase reactions then take place on either side of ACE2 where it is catalyzed by two different enzymes, converting angiotensin II to Ang-(1-7) and then to Ang-(1-9). The latter reaction results in aldosterone synthesis. Ang-(1-7) and Ang-(1-9) bind to the receptor cells causing an increase in volume of blood plasma, which increases cardiac output and hydrostatic pressure (baroreceptor reflex). Ang-(1-9) is then converted to aldosterone which increases renal reabsorption of sodium, chloride and water. It also inhibits the release of renin from α cells of the juxtaglomerular apparatus and increases activity of NaCl cotransport.

Both membrane-bound and soluble forms are integral parts of the renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system (RAAS) that exists to keep the body’s blood pressure in check. It has an important function as part of the renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system (RAAS) protective phase, where soluble ACE2’s (sACE2) act as a counterbalance to the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE). sACE2 lowers blood pressure by catalyzing the hydrolysis of angiotensin II (a vasoconstrictor peptide) into angiotensin (1–7)(a vasodilator) which in turns binds to MasR receptors creating localized vasodilation and hence decreasing blood pressure.

It also acts as a vasodilator, which counterbalances ACE and causes blood vessel walls to relax. Due to its important role, ACE2 is also highly regulated by the renin–angiotensin system (RAS) which is a part of the body’s intrinsic metabolic pathway. According to this regulation, when blood pressure rises and becomes too high, the RAS induces activation of ACE to produce more angiotensins which causes vasoconstriction and raises the blood pressure. It is inhibited by angiotensin II (AngII), renin and post-translational modifications. It is referred to as as a regulator of extracellular matrix protein degradation.


Human ACE2 ELISA kit can be used to analyse levels of angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2, ACEH, ACEII) present is serum, plasma, biological fluids and tissue homogenate samples.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
