Structure and signalling pathways of kinin receptors

Structure and signalling pathways of kinin receptors

Andrologia 35(1): 17-23

Kinins are peptide hormones that transmit their biological effects via G protein-coupled receptors. They are generated by kallikrein-mediated proteolysis of their precursors, the kininogens. Kinins have been implicated in the regulation of blood pressure, pain sensation and cell growth. Interestingly, all components of the kallikrein-kinin system have also been localized in testis.
