Title: Tonin
CAS Registry Number: 53414-68-9
Additional Names: b-Angiotensin I converting enzyme (formerly)
Literature References: A converting enzyme that differs from renin, q.v., in its ability to form angiotensin II directly from angiotensinogen by cleaving the Phe-His bond; it can also convert angiotensin I to angiotensin II. Its presence was discovered in rat submaxillary glands: R. Boucher et al., Hypertension 72, J. Genest, E. Koiw, Eds. (Springer-Verlag, New York, 1972) p 512; eidem, Circ. Res. Suppl. I, 203 (1974).

Properties: Mol wt determn is 31,400 by gel filtration and 28,700 by sedimentation equilibrium. Activity is not affected by pepstatin. Can be incubated at 20° for 150 min, between pH 3.4-8 without significant loss of enzymatic activity; loses 15% of its original activity at pH 2.8. After 5 min of incubation at 100°, 60-65% activity remains.
