Interaction Information:

Comment Using mass spectrometry the authors identified alamandine as a product of the catalytic hydrolysis of the octapeptide Ala1-AngII (angiotensin A) by human ACE2. They demonstrate that alamandine can be formed in the rat heart after Ang-(1–7) perfusion with the use of selected reaction monitoring-mass spectrometry. This indicates that the cardiac tissue contains all necessary components to promote the decarboxylation of the Ang-(1–7) N-terminal aspartate amino acid residue. The sequence of alamandine is very similar to Ang-(1–7), differing only by the presence of an alanine residue in place of an aspartate residue in the amino terminus.
