|Description||Amiloride is a selective T-type calcium channel blocker, an epithelial sodium channel blocker and a selective inhibitor of urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA)(Ki=7 μM).|
Amiloride is a relatively selective inhibitor of the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) with an IC50 (the concentration required to reach 50% inhibition of an ion channel) in the concentration range of 0.1 to 0.5 μM. Amiloride is a relatively poor inhibitor of the the Na+/H+ exchanger (NHE) with an IC50 as low as 3 μM in the presence of a low external [Na+] but as high as 1 mM in the presence of a high [Na+]. Amiloride is an even weaker inhibitor of the Na+/Ca2+ exchanger (NCX), with an IC50 of 1 mM. Amiloride (1 μM) and submicromolar doses of Benzamil (30 nM), doses known to inhibit the ENaC, inhibit the myogenic vasoconstriction response to increasing perfusion pressure by blocking the activity of ENaC proteins. Amiloride completely inhibits Na+ influx in doses known to be relatively specific for ENaC (1.5 μM) in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC). 
|In vivo||Amiloride at 1 mg/kg/day subcutaneously is found to reverse the initial increases in collagen deposition and prevent any further increases in the DOCA-salt hypertensive rat. Amiloride delays the onset of proteinuria and improved brain and kidney histologic scores in the saline-drinking, stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSP). compared with controls. Amiloride antagonizes or prevents actions of aldosterone in these cells and in cardiovascular and renal tissues in animals with salt-dependent forms of hypertension. |

* 1 mg/ml means slightly soluble or insoluble.
* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) × Volume (L) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
