Background: Bradykinin is a nine-amino-acid vasoactive peptide which elicits
numerous physiologic responses such as vasodilation, smooth muscle spasm
and pain. Bradykinin is one of a family of such peptides called the kinins.
These kinins are generated by proteolysis of high-molecular-weight precursors
called kininogens upon activation by pathophysiologic conditions such as
inflammation or allergy. The physiological actions of these kinins are brought
about through their interaction with transmembrane receptors. There are two
distinct bradykinin receptor subtypes; B1 and B2, both of which appear to
be coupled to G-proteins. The B2 receptor subtype is found in healthy smooth
muscle cells and neurons, whereas the B1 receptors are only detected following
tissue injury. The B2 receptor is similar in structure to other seven-helix
G-protein- coupled receptors. Bradykinin has relatively low affinity for
B1 receptors, interacting primarily with the B2 receptor through which several
second messenger systems are stimulated, including inositol phospholipid
hydrolysis, arachidonic acid metabolism, tyrosine phosphorylation, and membrane
depolarization and hyperpolarization.
