Hitherto analyses of protein complexes are frequently confined to the changes in the interface of the protein subunits undergoing interaction, while the holistic picture of the protein monomers' structure transformation, or the pervasive rigidity adopted by the newly formed complex are most often than not improperly evaluated in spite of the multiple and(More)
We investigated the mechanism of action of a novel 'high ceiling' diuretic, M17055, in in vivo clearance studies with anesthetized dogs during water diuresis and in vitro microperfusion studies of isolated rabbit renal tubules. In the clearance study, intravenous infusion of M17055 (1 mg/kg per h) decreased free water clearance and increased urinary(More)

The diuretic activity of a quinolinone oxime diuretic, M12285, was examined after renal arterial, i.v. and portal injection in rats. M12285 injected into the renal artery at a dose of 1 mg/kg caused no diuretic effect, whereas i.v. and portal injections induced marked diuresis dose dependently. The minimum effective dose with portal injection was lower (1(More)
7-Chloro-2,3-dihydro-1-(2-methylbenzoyl)-4(1H)-quinolinone 4-oxime-O-sulfonic acid potassium salt (M17055, CAS 114417-20-8) showed potent diuretic and saluretic effects dose-dependently, in rats (p.o.), mice (p.o.) and dogs (i.v.), at doses of 0.1-100 mg/kg, 0.3-100 mg/kg and 0.01-30 mg/kg, respectively. The efficacy of M17055 for diuresis, natriuresis and(More)
In order to investigate the origin of the loop-type diuretic activity of M17055 (1), several variants (3-9) were designed and synthesized by modifying the quinolinone skeleton, and their diuretic activities were compared with the lead 1 and furosemide in dogs. It was found that the negative charge distribution pattern afforded by the dispositional(More)
