WHAT DOES KININ MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Kinin

A kinin is any of various structurally related polypeptides, such as bradykinin and kallikrein. They are members of the autacoid family. They act locally to induce vasodilation and contraction of smooth muscle. It is a component of the kinin-kallikrein system. Their precursors are kininogens. In botany, plant hormones cytokinins were first called kinins, but the name was changed to avoid confusion. Aspirin inhibits the activation of kallenogen by interfering with the formation of kallikrien enzyme which is essential in the process of activation.

Definition of kinin in the English dictionary

The definition of kinin in the dictionary is any of a group of polypeptides in the blood that cause dilation of the blood vessels and make smooth muscles contract.
