(kal´ĭ-din) a kinin produced by the action of tissue and glandular kallikreins on low-molecular-weight kininogen; it has physiologic effects similar to those of bradykinin.Found on http://www.encyclo.co.uk/local/21001
Type: Term Pronunciation: kal′i-din Definitions: 1. A decapeptide vasodilator consisting of bradykinin with a lysyl group attached to the amino terminus. This group can be removed by an aminopeptidase in the blood to yield bradykinin. Synonyms: bradykininogen, kallidin 10, kallidin II, kinin 10, lysyl-bradykininFound on http://www.medilexicon.com/medicaldictionary.php?t=46640
Kallidin is a bioactive kinin formed in response to injury from kininogen precursors through the action of kallikreins. Kallidin is a decapeptide that can be converted to bradykinin by the aminopeptidase enzyme. It can be a substrate for carboxypeptidase M and N. Kallidin is identical to bradykinin with an additional lysine residue added at the N-...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kallidin
