Abstract

Kallikreins from various sources have been studied by many investigators including Moriya et al. (1958; 1959a,b,c,d, e, f, g; 1963), to elucidate the physiological and pathological significance of the various kallikreins and of the vasodilator polypeptide, kallidin (or bradykinin), liberated by kallikreins.
