Gene: ACE (angiotensin I converting enzyme) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ACE
Name: angiotensin I converting enzyme
RGD ID: 737323
Description: Exhibits several functions, including chloride ion binding activity; peptidase activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including arachidonic acid secretion; peptide metabolic process; and regulation of angiotensin metabolic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including external side of plasma membrane; extracellular exosome; and lysosome. Implicated in several diseases, including Coronavirus infectious disease (multiple); artery disease (multiple); autoimmune disease (multiple); lung disease (multiple); and nephritis (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including chronic myeloid leukemia; intermediate coronary syndrome; lung disease (multiple); pancreatic ductal carcinoma; and renal fibrosis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
