kallidin

 [kal´ĭ-din]
lysyl-bradykinin, a kinin produced by the action of tissue and glandular kallikreins on low-molecular-weight kininogen and having physiologic effects similar to those of bradykinin. Formerly, the term was applied to several different peptides: bradykinin was called kallidin I or 9 and lysyl-bradykinin was called kallidin II or 10.

kal·li·din

(kal'i-din),
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.

kallidin

/kal·li·din/ (kal´ĭ-din) lysyl-bradykinin, a decapeptide kinin produced by the action of tissue and glandular kallikreins on LMW kininogen and having physiologic effects similar to those of bradykinin.

kallidin

kinin liberated by the action of kallikrein on a globulin of blood plasma. Kallidin I is the same as bradykinin; kallidin II is composed of bradykinin with a lysine added at the N-terminal.
