Interaction Information:

Comment Soluble ACE2 activity was more than doubled in the cerebrospinal fluid of individuals with uncontrolled hypertension. This suggests that ADAM17-mediated ACE2 shedding is taking place in the CNS during human hypertension. The increased level of TNFalpha in those cerebrospinal fluid samples confirmed that ADAM17 was upregulated in the brain of hypertensive patients.
