Kinin

Jump to: navigation, search

A kinin is any of various structurally related polypeptides, such as bradykinin and kallikrein. They are members of the autacoid family.[1]

They act locally to induce vasodilation and contraction of smooth muscle.[2][3]

It is a component of the kinin-kallikrein system.

Their precursors are kininogen.[4]

In botany, it refers to plant hormones which delay aging.[5]
