Neurokinin A (substance K) (Gerard NP et al, 1990) is a peptide neurotransmitter of the tachykinin family which can act as a mediator in human airway and gastrointestinal tissues. Neurokinin A acts via the substance K receptor (NK-2 receptor) (Harmar AJ et al, 1986), believed to be localized on smooth muscle cells and pharmacologically coupled to a GTP-binding protein.
