Abstract

The history of kallikrein begins with the discovery of urinary kallikrein more than fifty years ago. The renal origin of urinary kallikrein, though not finally proved, is largely accepted. A possible role of kallikrein in the regulation of kidney function and blood pressure has been debated for a long time (Pisano and Auster, 1976). However, neither the question for its origin, nor for its physiological role is finally settled.
