Abstract

The effect of subcutaneous injection of cyclosporine (20 mg/kg/day for 3 days) on the expression of kallikrein (Kal) and bradykinin 2 receptor (BK2) mRNA in the rat renal cortex was examined. CsA decreased significantly Kal and BK2 mRNA expression in the kidney cortex. These results indicate that the kallikrein-kinin system may participate in the genesis or the aggravation of the renal haemodynamic effect induced by long term administration of CsA.
