We developed an enzyme immunoassay (EIA) specific for Arg1-Pro2-Pro3-Gly4-Phe5 ([1-5]-BK) for determination of the levels of this peptide in biological fluids. Previously developed EIAs for bradykinin (BK) and for des-Phe8-Arg9-BK ([1-7]BK) were also used. Incubation of rat plasma with glass powder resulted in the transient appearance of BK. A degradation… CONTINUE READING
