Separation of Two Different Substrates for Plasma Kinin-forming Enzymes

  title={Separation of Two Different Substrates for Plasma Kinin-forming Enzymes},
  author={Sten Jacobsen},
THE formation and possible function of plasma kinins have attracted considerable interest during recent years. The kinins have been shown to be formed from a fraction within the α-2 globulins of the plasma by the action of several enzymes. Kinin-forming enzymes are present in several glandular secretions, such as saliva and sweat. Another type of enzyme, called plasma kallikrein, is present in an inactive form in plasma. The first two plasma kinins identified were bradykinin1 and kallidin2,3… CONTINUE READING
