Nov 2007AnaSpecRequest Info
An assay kit that offers continuous monitoring of angiotensin I converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) activity has been released by AnaSpec Inc. The SensoLyte 390 ACE2 activity assay kit provides enough reagents to perform 100 assays in a 96-well format and can complete the process in 1 h. It uses a Mc-Ala/Dnp FRET peptide for high-throughput screening of ACE2 inhibitors and inducers and for continuous assay of ACE2 activity. ACE2 has direct effects on cardiac function and is expressed predominantly in vascular endothelial cells of the heart and the kidneys.
