  • Function
    Carboxypeptidase which converts angiotensin I to angiotensin 1-9, a peptide of unknown function, and angiotensin II to angiotensin 1-7, a vasodilator. Also able to hydrolyze apelin-13 and dynorphin-13 with high efficiency. May be an important regulator of heart function. In case of human coronaviruses SARS and HCoV-NL63 infections, serve as functional receptor for the spike glycoprotein of both coronaviruses.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in endothelial cells from small and large arteries, and in arterial smooth muscle cells. Expressed in lung alveolar epithelial cells, enterocytes of the small intestine, Leydig cells and Sertoli cells (at protein level). Expressed in heart, kidney, testis, and gastrointestinal system.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase M2 family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    N-glycosylation on Asn-90 may limit SARS infectivity.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted and Cell membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
