Ready-to-Assay™ B2 Bradykinin Receptor Frozen Cells

Bradykinins bind and activate two GPCRs, termed B1 and B2 (gene names BDKRB1 and BDKRB2, respectively), which signal through Gq and Gi. B2 is widely expressed in a constitutive fashion, whereas B1 expression is induced during inflammation. B2 appears to mediate much of the activity of kinins in vasodilation, arthritis, edema, and nociception (Leeb-Lundberg et al., 2005). Cloned human B2-expressing cell line is made in the Chem-1 host, which supports high levels of recombinant B2 expression on the cell surface for functional detection via the calcium signaling pathway. Thus, the cell line is an ideal tool for screening for agonists, antagonists, and modulators at B2.
