Bradykinin Receptors

Kinins are small peptides produced rapidly following tissue injury that serve as important modulators of inflammation and pain. Kinins, such as Bradykinin (BK), Lys-BK, desArg9-BK, and Lys-desArg9-BK, exert their action via two distinct receptors: the B1 Bradykinin receptor (BKRB1) and the B2 Bradykinin receptor (BKRB2) which belong to the superfamily of G-protein coupled receptors.
