Interaction of nonpeptide angiotensin II receptor antagonists with the urate transporter in rat renal brush-border membranes.


The angiotensin II (AII) antagonist, losartan, increases uric acid excretion when administered to humans. However, the active metabolite of losartan, EXP 3174, and other nonpeptide AII antagonists such as eprosartan and SB 203220 are devoid of uricosuric activity. To investigate the mechanism of losartan-induced uricosuria, we examined the effects of… (More)
