Binding of 2-amino-4-chloro-m-benzenedisulfonamide as a metabolite of hydrochlorothiazide to erythrocytes.


PMID 2076577

Abstract

2-Amino-4-chloro-m-benzenedisulfonamide (ACBS) is a metabolite of hydrochlorothiazide. We reported that the ACBS concentration in erythrocytes was higher than in plasma in a patient. Therefore the binding of ACBS to rabbit erythrocyte was studied. The Scatchard plot showed the nonlinear plot and the horizontal asymptote. Curvature in this plot indicated the existence of 2 classes of binding. One class was at a specific site, probably at carbonic anhydrase. Chromatographic data seemed to support the possibility.
