As part of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS), angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) plays a key role in circulatory homeostasis. ACE degrades vasodilator kinins and generates angiotensin II. A polymorphism in intron 16 of the human ACE gene has been identified in which the presence (insertion, I allele) rather than the absence (deletion, D...More
