    Description: Triamterene (formerly SKF-8542; SKF8542; BRN-0266723; Dyrenium; Diucelpin; Diurene) is a diuretic commonly used in combination with thiazide diuretics (e.g. hydrochlorothiazide/triamterene) for the treatment of high blood pressure or swelling. Triamterene has potassium sparing properties, and also blocks Na+ channel (ENaC) in a voltage-dependent manner with an IC50 of 4.5 μM.

    In Vitro

    In vitro activity: Triamterene inhibits the epithelial sodium channels on principal cells in the late distal convoluted tubule and collecting tubule, which are responsible for 1-2% of total sodium reabsorption. Triamterene can achieve a modest amount of diuresis by decreasing the osmotic gradient necessary for water reabsorption from lumen to interstitium. Triamterene also has a potassium-sparing effect. Normally, the process of potassium excretion is driven by the electrochemical gradient produced by sodium reabsorption. As sodium is reabsorbed, it leaves a negative potential in the lumen, while producing a positive potential in the principal cell. This potential promotes potassium excretion through apical potassium channels. By inhibiting sodium reabsorption, triamterene also inhibits potassium excretion.

    In Vivo4'-hydroxylation of triamterene in humans appears to be mediated exclusively by CYP1A2. Inhibition or induction of CYP1A2 will change the time course of both triamterene and its active phase-II metabolite.
