Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Determination Reagent

Angiotensin Converting Enzyme(ACE) Determination Reagent(FAPGG substrate method) is an in vitro diagnostic test kit. It is useful in assessing the response of sarcoidosis to corticosteroid therapy.

ACE is a dipeptidyl carboxypeptidase. Increases are less frequent when sarcoidosis is inactive.6 Some 80% to 90% of patients with demonstrably active sarcoidosis have elevated serum ACE. It functions to split dipeptides from the free carboxy end of a variety of polypeptides including angiotensin I and bradykinin.
