Core Tip Bradykinin (BK), its peptide and non-peptide analogs and mimetic were potently and efficaciously able to stimulate extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 phosphorylation in human ciliary muscle (h-CM) cells in vitro. Additionally, these agonists also induced the production and secretion of pro-matrix metalloproteinases in a prostaglandin-independent manner. Selective antagonists helped link these responses to be mediated via the B2-receptor sub-type in h-CM cells. These mechanistic studies show how BK can lower intraocular pressure in animals when delivered to the eye.
