Abstract

Bradykinin and 22 of its analogs were evaluated for their abilities to inhibit the hydrolysis of [3H]hippurylglycylglycine by purified porcine kidney angiotensin I converting enzyme. The mean inhibitory concentration (IC50) for bradykinin was 1.2 +/- 0.2 X 10(-6) M. Except for Ile-Ser-bradykinin and [Sar4]-bradykinin, none of the kinin analogs were more potent in this regard than bradykinin. Bacitracin, gamma-aminobutyric acid, epsilon-aminocaproic acid, and structurally related compounds were also tested. The IC50 value for bacitracin was 1.9 +/- 0.4 X 10(-4) M, gamma-aminobutyric acid, 83.4 +/- 7.2 mM, and for epsilon-aminocaproic acid, 7.0 +/- 1.4 mM. Compounds were also evaluated for their abilities to prevent 125I-labelled [Tyr1]-kallidin binding to angiotensin I converting enzyme inhibited by EDTA. The IC50 values for bradykinin, bacitracin, gamma-aminobutyric acid, and epsilon-aminocaproic acid were 1.6 +/- 0.3 X 10(-8) M, 2.6 +/- 0.9 X 10(-6) M, greater than 291 mM, and 13.2 +/- 3.9 mM, respectively.
