The release of kininase from rat isolated hearts during myocardial ischaemia.

PMID:  8856168     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
BK destroying activity was observed in rat isolated heart perfusates. BK was optimally degraded at pH 8.4 in rat heart. The results indicated that myocardial kinin degradation was due to ACE and a serine protease. These results suggest that bradykinin may have some cardioprotective role during myocardial ischaemia at acidic pH.
