  • ABSTRACT The skins of a wide range of frogs, particularly those belonging to the families Ascaphidae, Bombinatatoridae, and Ranidae, synthesize bradykinin (BK)-related peptides. BK identical in structure to the mammalian peptide, larger molecular forms of BK extended from either the N- or C-terminus by additional amino acids, and molecular variants of BK containing amino acid substitutions, have been identified. The frog skin BK peptides are not generated by activation of the kallikrein-kinin… CONTINUE READING
