ST-93 induced significant diuresis in rats. Dose-dependent effects were observed in urine volume and electrolyte excretion. Dose-related natriuretic and chloruretic activities were noticed. Prazosin and yohimbine significantly antagonised diuresis of ST- 93, while propranolol, cimetidine, cyproheptadine, naloxone and bicuculline had no such effect. The data suggest the possible involvement of both alpha-l and alpha-2 adrenoceptors in the diuretic effect of ST 93 in rats.
