Enzymes that hydrolyze kinins are known under the collective term of "kininases." This short review surveys kininase I- and II-type enzymes. For the sake of simplicity, we call carboxypeptidases that remove the C-terminal arginine of kinins kininase I-type enzymes. Plasma carboxypeptidase N and the cell membrane-bound carboxypeptidase M belong here. Kininase II enzymes release the C-terminal dipeptide Phe-Arg; angiotensin I-converting enzyme and neutral endopeptidase 24.11 (enkephalinase) are… CONTINUE READING
