Purity & Quality Control
|Description||Methyclothiazide is a substituted benzothiadiazide, used to treat high blood pressure and fluid retention caused by various conditions including heart disease.|
|Features||A diuretic-antihypertensive agent, and is a member of the benzothiadiazine (thiazide) class of drugs.|
Methyclothiazide (0.1 mM) reduces Ca2+ contractures with maximal inhibition of 90.4% in SHR aortic rings with endothelium. The inhibitory effect of Methyclothiazide (0.1 mM) on Ca2+ contracture is significantly but not totally abolished by the NO synthase inhibitor in SHR aortic rings with functional endothelium.  Methyclothiazide (0.1 mM) induces endothelium-dependent inhibition of the vasoconstrictor responses to NE and AVP only in aortas from spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) rather than normotensive Wistar Kyoto rats (WKY), and the maximal vasoconstrictive effect of NE and AVP is decreased by 59% and 32.3%, respectively.  Methyclothiazide (3.5 mM) inhibits renin release in rat kidney slices. 
|In vivo||Methyclothiazide (0.1 g/L for the first 5 weeks and 0.2 g/L for the second 2 weeks, drinking water) attenuates development of hypertension in salt-sensitive (DS) rats, but does not affect blood pressure in salt-resistant (DR) ones.  The methyclothiazide-treated DOCA-salt rats weigh less than controls or the nonsupplemented DOCA-salt rats at weeks 3 and 4. Methyclothiazide added to the drinking water of DOCA-salt rats attenuates the elevation of blood pressure. |

* 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 (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × 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.
