Angiotensin Converting Enzyme

Official Full Name
Angiotensin Converting Enzyme
Background
Angiotensin-converting enzyme (EC 3.4.15.1), or "ACE" indirectly increases blood pressure by causing blood vessels to constrict. It does that by converting angiotensin I to angiotensin II, which constricts the vessels. For this reason, drugs known as ACE inhibitors are used to lower blood pressure. ACE, angiotensin I and angiotensin II are part of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS), which controls blood pressure by regulating the volume of fluids in the body. ACE is secreted in the lungs and kidneys by cells in the endothelium (inner layer) of blood vessels.
