Interaction Information:

Comment Male rats showed higher cardiac ACE and ACE2 activity as well as hypertrophy compared to female rats.
Formal Description
Interaction-ID: 116062

Drugbank entries Show/Hide entries for ACE2
Comment Ovariectomy leads to withdrawal of estrogen. It increases cardiac hypertrophy and ACE2 activity, but did not change ACE activity. Gonadectomy, withdrawal of testosterone, has the opposite effect.
Formal Description
Interaction-ID: 116065

Drugbank entries Show/Hide entries for Estradiol or ACE2
Comment Male rats exhibited higher ACE2 and ACE ventricular activity than the female rats. Gonadectomy, withdrawal of testosterone, promoted opposite responses in the activity of both enzymes.
