(Biochemistry) An circulating enzyme released by mammalian kidneys that converts angiotensinogen to angiotensin-I. Because its activity ultimately leads to formation of angiotensin-II and aldosterone, this hormone plays a role in maintaining blood pressure.
Any of various enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of an ester.
Any of various enzymes that break down RNA.
