Interaction Information:

Comment Purified human ACE2 hydrolyzes Ang II with high catalytic efficiency to produce angiotensin (1-7). The catalytic efficiency of ACE2 is 400 times higher on angiotensin II than on angiotensin I. The other peptides, angiotensin 1-9, angiotensin 1-7, and angiotensin 1-5, are poorly hydrolyzed or not hydrolyzed at all by ACE2.
