Abstract

The current bioassay methods for such vasoactive peptides as bradykinin and angiotensin all present problems of specificity, quantitation, reproducibility, and convenience. Haber et al. (1965) have recently reported a new method for the quantitation of angiotensin II, which depends upon the binding of the polypeptide by specific antiangiotensin antibody. This paper describes a similar method for the assay of bradykinin.
