The kinin B1 receptor antagonist des-Arg9-[Leu8]bradykinin: an antagonist of the angiotensin AT1 receptor which also binds to the AT2 receptor

British Journal of Pharmacology

1. Agonists and antagonists of kinin B1 and B2 receptors were evaluated in vitro for their effects against angiotensin II (AII)-induced contractile responses in the rabbit aorta and for their binding properties to angiotensin AT1 and AT2 receptors from purified membrane of rat liver and lamb uterus respectively. 2. In aortic rings, the kinin B1 receptor antagonist, des-Arg9-[Leu8]bradykinin (BK) (3-100 microM) caused a concentration-dependent decrease in sensitivity and a depression of the maximum response to AII. Des-Arg10-[Leu9]kallidin (KD), des-Arg9-BK, des-Arg10-KD, BK or KD at 3 microM had no effect against AII-induced contractions. 3. Des-Arg9-[Leu8]BK (3 or 100 microM) did not affect contractions of aortic rings to histamine, potassium chloride, endothelin-1, 5-hydroxytryptamine, noradrenaline and the thromboxane A2-mimetic, U46619. 4. Des-Arg9-[Leu8]BK displaced [125I]-Sar1-AII binding to the AT1 subtype in rat liver membranes with a Ki value of 1.1 +/- 0.4 microM. Values of Ki for des-Arg9-BK and KD were 45 +/- 13 microM and 25 +/- 22 microM, respectively. The other kinin derivatives des-Arg10-KD, BK and des-Arg10-[Leu9]KD at concentrations up to 100 microM did not bind to the AT1 receptor. 5. All the kinin derivative...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
