Neprilysin hydrolyzes Angiotensin-(1-9) to Angiotensin-(1-7) (R-HSA-2022368)

Species Homo sapiens


Neprilysin hydrolyzes angiotensin-(1-9) to yield angiotensin-(1-7) (Rice et al. 2004). The hydrolysis of angiotensin-(1-9) catalyzed by neprilysin is more efficient than that catalyzed by angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) (Rice et al. 2004).
