Quinaprilat-d5 is a deuterium-labeled metabolite of Quinapril and an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. This compound prevents the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II, which is a potent vasoconstrictor. This labeled compound is useful in kinetic isotope effect studies as well as for use as an internal standard in NMR experiments.
