||Recombinant Human ACE2 Protein (H374N, and H378N), human IgG1 Fc tag
Recombinant protein of the extracellular domain (Gln18-Asp615) of Homo sapiens angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), transcript variant 2 (NM_021804), with H374N, H378N point mutation, and a Human IgG1 Fc tag.
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the angiotensin-converting enzyme family of dipeptidyl carboxydipeptidases and has considerable homology to human angiotensin 1 converting enzyme. This secreted protein catalyzes the cleavage of angiotensin I into angiotensin 1-9, and angiotensin II into the vasodilator angiotensin 1-7. The organ- and cell-specific expression of this gene suggests that it may play a role in the regulation of cardiovascular and renal function, as well as fertility. In addition, the encoded protein is a functional receptor for the spike glycoprotein of the human coronaviruses SARS and HCoV-NL63. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008].
