Bradykinin antagonizes the effects of alpha-thrombin.


alpha-Thrombin (AT) and bradykinin (BK) are endogenous mediators that are released during an inflammatory response, and could have a synergistic effect on endothelial permeability. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) were grown on Transwell membranes and then tested for alterations in permeability to fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled human serum… (More)
