Product Name:
Terazosin
CAS Number:
63590-64-7
Indication:
For the treatment of symptomatic BPH and mild to moderate hypertension.
Mode of Action:

In general, __-adrenergic receptors mediate contraction and hypertrophic growth of smooth muscle cells. __-Receptors are 7-transmembrane domain receptors coupled to G proteins, Gq/__. Three __-receptor subtypes, which share approximately 75% homology in their transmembrane domains, have been identified: __A (chromosome 8), __B (chromosome 5), and __D (chromosome _0). Terazosin is the first __-receptor antagonist to demonstrate selectivity for the __A-receptor. All three receptor subtypes appear to be involved in maintaining vascular tone. The __A-receptor maintains basal vascular tone while the __B-receptor mediates the vasocontrictory effects of exogenous __-agonists. Activation of __-receptors activates Gq-proteins, which results in intracellular stimulation of phospholipases C, A_, and D. This results in mobilization of Ca_+ from intracellular stores, activation of mitogen-activated kinase and PI_ kinase pathways and subsequent vasoconstriction. Terozosin produces its pharmacological effects by inhibiting __A-receptor activation. Inhibition of these receptors in the vasculature and prostate results in muscle relaxation, decreased blood pressure and improved urinary outflow in symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Pharmacodynamics:

Terazosin, classified as a quinazoline, is similar to doxazosin and prazosin. As an _-adrenergic blocking agent, terazosin is used to treat hypertension and BPH. Terazosin produces vasodilation and reduces peripheral resistance but in general has only a slight effect on cardiac output. The antihypertensive effect with chronic dosing is not usually accompanied by reflex tachycardia.

Metabolism:

Hepatic. One of the four metabolites identified (piperazine derivative of terazosin) has antihypertensive activity.

Toxicity:

LD50=259.3mg/kg (IV in mice)
