ACE2, a multifunctional protein – from cardiovascular regulation to COVID-19


Twenty years after its discovery, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) has become one of the most studied proteins. Since ACE2 was identified as the  SARS-coronavirus 2 receptor, it has held centre stage with already more than 500 peer-reviewed publications in 2020. On this occasion Clinical Science is compiling a themed collection ‘ACE2, a multifunctional protein – from cardiovascular regulation to COVID-19’ with reviews and original papers on the physiological and pathophysiological roles of the multiple known tasks of ACE2 including carboxypeptidase, amino acid transport regulator, and virus receptor functions.

This Clinical Science themed collection will be Guest edited by:

Professor Rhian Touyz, University of Glasgow
Professor Michael Bader, Max Delbruck Center for Molecular Medicine
Professor Anthony Turner, University of Leeds
Dr Natalia Alenina, Max Delbruck Center for Molecular Medicine
