Description

Packaging

10, 50 mg in glass bottle

Preparation Note

Torsemide is soluble in DMSO at 18 mg/ml and is insoluble in water.

Application

Torsemide has been used as an inhibitor of Na+ Cl- co-transporter in transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana plants1.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Torsemide functions in the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle and enhances the excretion of sodium, chloride and water from the luminal side of the cells. Furthermore, torsemide can treat oedematous conditions that are associated with diseases such as liver cirrhosis, kidney disorders and chronic congestive heart failure2.

Torsemide is a loop diuretic of the pyridine-sulfonylurea class with antialdosteronergic properties and inhibitor of the Na+/K+/2Cl- carrier system.
