Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE)


Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE)


Chemical Pathology - Routine Laboratory

Clinical indications

Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) is an enzyme which helps regulate blood pressure. It converts angiotensin I (an inactive protein) to angiotensin II which causes arteries to contract, making them temporarily narrower and increasing the pressure of the blood flowing through them. ACE is produced throughout the body, but is present in especially high amounts within the lungs
