The kinins, particularly bradykinin (BK), are important mediators involved in both the initiation and progression of an inflammatory response. The pro-inflammatory effects of kinins are mediated by at least two receptors: the B2 subtype is expressed constitutively and the B1 receptor is induced following tissue inflammation and damage. The endogenous ligand for the B1 receptor is des-arg9BK, a cleavage product of the activity of carboxypeptidase on BK. Activation of B1 receptors produces a… CONTINUE READING
