The Angiotensin 1 converting enzyme (ACE) gene codes for the ACE protein and is part of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS), which controls blood pressure by regulating fluid volume in the body. The ACE gene variant also contributes to salt sensitivity. An ACE gene polymorphism associated with an increased ACE activity might be associated with the atherosclerotic process and consequently cardiovascular disease and mortality.
It also plays a role in your endurance and performance potential, fat cell growth and differentiation, weight gain and obesity, blood sugar balance and insulin sensitivity.
