endothelin converting enzyme 1
endothelin-converting enzyme 1
Endothelin-converting Enzyme 1 (ECE-1) is a zinc protease of the neprilysin (NEP) family, which also includes ECE-2, PEX, XCE, DINE, Kell and several NEP-like proteins (1). ECE-1 is a type II transmembrane protein with a short cytoplasmic tail and a large ectodomain. Four alternatively spliced isoforms differ in their cytoplasmic tail (2, 3). In addition to big endothelin-1, ECE-1 cleaves a variety of bioactive peptides such as bradykinin, neurotensin, angiotensin I, and substance P (1). Together with ECE-2, it is also involved in degradation of beta -amyloid peptide (4). The ectodomain of human ECE-1, which is common to all isoforms, was expressed with an N-terminal His tag and purified.
