Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Weak diuretic with potassium sparing properties; blocks Na+ reuptake in the kidneys.

Preparation Note

200 mg of triamterene is soluble in 4 ml of warm formic acid and yields a clear, yellow-green solution. Triamterene is also soluble in DMSO (5.4 mg/ml), and in 45% (w/v) aqueous 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (1.2 mg/ml). However, it is insoluble in water.

Application

Triamterene has been used to study its effects on urokinase receptor (uPAR) induction in podocytes under in vitro conditions2. Triamterene has also been identified as an activator compound from a LOPAC library screen using a fluorogenic α-glucosidase assay3.
