Western blot analysis of ACE2 on human kidney tissue lysate. Proteins were transferred to a PVDF membrane and blocked with 5% BSA in PBS for 1 hour at room temperature. The primary antibody (ER1902-40, 1/500) was used in 5% BSA at room temperature for 2 hours. Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG - HRP Secondary Antibody (HA1001) at 1:5,000 dilution was used for 1 hour at room temperature.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded human kidney tissue using anti-ACE2 antibody. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with Tris-EDTA buffer (pH 8.0-8.4) for 20 minutes.The tissues were blocked in 5% BSA for 30 minutes at room temperature, washed with ddH2O and PBS, and then probed with the primary antibody (ER1902-40, 1/200) for 30 minutes at room temperature. The detection was performed using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. Tissues were counterstained with hematoxylin and mounted with DPX.
  • Flow cytometric analysis of ACE2 was done on Vero cells. The cells were stained with the primary antibody (ER1902-40, 1/50) (red). After incubation of the primary antibody at room temperature for an hour, the cells were stained with a Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated Goat anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution for 30 minutes.Unlabelled sample was used as a control (cells without incubation with primary antibody; green).
  • Flow cytometric analysis of ACE2 was done with ACE2 transfected 293 cells. The cells were stained with the primary antibody (ER1902-40, 1/50) (red).

TISSUE SPECIFICITY

Expressed in endothelial cells from small and large arteries, and in arterial smooth muscle cells (at protein level). Expressed in lung alveolar epithelial cells, enterocytes of the small intestine, Leydig cells and Sertoli cells (at protein level). Expressed in the renal proximal tubule and the small intestine (at protein level). Expressed in heart, kidney, testis, and gastrointestinal system.

POST-TRANSLATIONAL MODIFICATION

N-glycosylation on Asn-90 may limit SARS infectivity.; Proteolytic cleavage by ADAM17 generates a secreted form. Also cleaved by serine proteases: TMPRSS2, TMPRSS11D and HPN/TMPRSS1.

SUBCELLULAR LOCATION

Secreted, Cell membrane.

FUNCTION

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is a carboxyl-terminal dipeptidyl exopeptidase that converts angiotensin I to the potent vasopressive hormone, angiotensin II. There are two isoforms of ACE, the pulmonary ACEP and the testicular ACET. ACEP is a glycoprotein expressed in vascular endothelial cells of the lung, liver, adrenal cortex, pancreas, kidney and spleen. The ACET isoform is expressed exclusively in adult testis by developing sperm cells, specifically late pachytene spermatocytes. Additionally, ACE inactivates bradykinin, a vasodepressor peptide, and is involved in blood pressure regulation and fluid/electrolyte homeostasis. ACE2 is the first known human homolog of ACE. Unlike ACE, which is expressed ubiquitously throughout the vasculature, ACE2 is expressed only in cardiac, renal and testicular cells. ACE2 is not sensitive to the ACE inhibitor drugs used to treat hypertension. ACE2 receptors have been shown to be the entry point into human cells for some coronaviruses, including the SARS virus[10]. A number of studies have identified that the entry point is the same for SARS-CoV-2, the COVID-19 virus.
