  • Product overview

    ACE2 in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of ACE2 protein in human tissue extract samples


    The SimpleStep ELISA® employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material. TMB substrate is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.


    ACE2 is a key enzyme in the renin-angiotensin system which regulates blood pressure. Specifically, ACE2 cleaves the terminal nonapeptide from angiotensin I or the terminal septapeptide from angiotensin II to create angiotensin[1-9] and angiotensin[1-7], respectively. The produced peptides work to oppose the effects of angiotensin II and act as a vasodilator. This enzyme is currently under investigation as a potential target for reducing instances of heart failure.

  • Research areas

  • 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.

Images

  • SimpleStep ELISA technology allows the formation of the antibody-antigen complex in one single step, reducing assay time to 90 minutes. Add samples or standards and antibody mix to wells all at once, incubate, wash, and add your final substrate. See protocol for a detailed step-by-step guide.

     

  • Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • The concentrations of ACE2 were measured in duplicate and interpolated from the ACE2 standard curve and corrected for sample dilution. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean ACE2 concentration was determined to be 146.3 ng/mL in human testis extract.
