receptors, bradykinin

cell surface receptors that bind bradykinin and related kinins with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behaviour of cells. The identified receptor types (b-1 and b-2, or bk-1 and bk-2) recognise the endogenous kallidins, t-kinins, and certain bradykinin fragments as well as bradykinin itself.
