Abstract Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) is a key enzyme of the renin angiotensin system, which breaks down angiotensin II and forms angiotensin-(1-7). In erectile tissues, it has been documented that angiotensin II contributes to the development of erectile dysfunction (ED), while treatment with angiotensin-(1-7) improves penile erection. However, the expression and function of ACE2 in erectile tissues have never been investigated.
