Current Concepts in Kinin Research contains the proceedings of the Satellite Symposium of the 7th International Congress of Pharmacology held in Paris on July 22, 1978. The book is organized into four parts. Part I explains the functions and mechanisms of the kinin system. Part II focuses on kallikreins and the methods of their determination. Part III describes the intrinsic blood clotting and plasma kinin formation. The last part deals with the characterization of plasma kininogens.

Table of Contents


  1. Functions and Mechanisms of the Kinin System Introduction Opening Remarks The Role of Kinin System in Male Fertility Kinin Involvement in Oestrogen-induced Hyperaemia in the Rat Kallikreins - Their Possible Biological Significance as Widely Distributed Serine Proteases The Mechanism of Action of Bradykinin on the Isolated Rat Uterus. Involvement of Prostaglandins? Bile may be a Stimulus for Activation of Duodenal Kallikrein during Digestion Interactions of Kinins with Amines and Peptides in the Microcirculation Plasmakinin System in Alloxan Diabetic Rats Large-scale Preparation of N-carboxypeptidase (Kininase I) as By-product of Routine Fractionation Neutral Proteases from Granulocytes and their Inhibitors
  2. Kallikreins and Methods of Determination The Role of Kallikrein in the Pathogenesis of African Trypanosomiasis Cl Inhibitor: the Main Inhibitor of Human Plasma Kallikrein Purification of Kallikrein in Human Pancreatic Juice, Immunological and Inhibition Studies Studies on the Physiological Function of Glandular Kallikrein by Radioimmunoassay Comparison of Kinin Release and Blood Pressure Activity of Porcine Pancreatic, Submandibular, and Urinary Kallikrein Isolation and Determination of Human Urinary Kallikrein Some Properties of Human Urinary Kallikrein obtained through Scaled-up Purification A New Assay for Urinary Kallikrein Studies on the Activation of the Pre-kininogenin-Kininogenin (Pre-kallikrein-Kallikrein) System by Sulfated Polysaccharides and Kaolin Fragmentation of Rabbit Low Molecular Weight Kininogenin by Pig Pancreatic Kallikrein
