A Radio-Immunoassay for Bradykinin
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.
