Activators of the adenylate cyclase or inhibitors of the cAMP-phosphodiesterase, respectively, potentiate the bradykinin-induced relaxation of the rat duodenum, whereas imidazole as a stimulator of the cAMP-phosphodiesterase reduces the relaxation. The experiments indicate a linkage between the adenylate cyclase system with the biological action of(More)
Some analogues of bradykinin, especially with replacements by other amino acids of phenylalanine in position 8, have been investigated for enzymatic stability against kininase II from rat duodenum microsomes and rat uterus plasma membranes, respectively. As compared with bradykinin, two of the analogues, [8-erythro-beta-phenylserine]- and(More)
beta-Casomorphin-(5) and some analogs modified by the introduction of some D-amino acids and D-pipecolic acid as well as by C-terminal amidation were tested for their affinities to mu- and delta-binding sites in rat brain membranes. The binding affinities of these compounds are compared with the known activities in the guinea pig ileum (GPI) and mouse vas(More)

At extremely low concentrations, in the picomole and the nanomole range, bradykinin produces contraction and relaxation of smooth muscle in the gastrointestinal and the urogenital tract. At the target organ, bradykinin interacts with discriminator proteins of the plasma membranes and triggers, via changes in certain membrane functions, its biological(More)
In the membrane fraction of rat uterus, kinin-destroying activity was found and characterized as kininase II by means of several kininase inhibitors. It could be shown that sudies of bradykinin-receptor interactions requires the use of kininase inhibitors like phenanthroline or the use of a stable bradykinin analogue like(More)
