ENZYME entry: EC 3.4.15.1

Accepted Name
Peptidyl-dipeptidase A.
Alternative Name(s)
ACE.
Angiotensin I-converting enzyme.
Carboxycathepsin.
Dipeptidyl carboxypeptidase I.
Kininase II.
Peptidase P.
Peptidyl dipeptidase I.
Reaction catalysed
Release of a C-terminal dipeptide, oligopeptide-|-Xaa-Yaa, when Xaa is not Pro, and Yaa is neither Asp nor Glu. Thus, conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II, with increase in vasoconstrictor activity, but no action on angiotensin II
Cofactor(s)
Zn(2+).
Comment(s)
  • Cl(-)-dependent.
  • A glycoprotein that is generally membrane-bound.
  • Active at neutral pH.
  • Only single dipeptides are released from angiotensin I and bradykinin because of the lack of activity on bonds involving proline.
  • Belongs to peptidase family M2.
