Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 432)


Administration of bradykinin to humans and several animal species engenders a variety of effects, including blood pressure reduction through endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation, changes in renal blood flow and tubular function, inflammatory reactions, vasoconstriction via direct effects on smooth muscle cells, alteration in vascular permeability and activation of sensory pain fibres1–3. Since circulating concentrations of bradykinin are usually too low to cause systemic effects4,5, autocrine and paracrine actions of kinins have increasingly received scientific attention.
