Canagliflozin, also known as JNJ-28431754 and TA 7284, is a drug of the gliflozin class or subtype 2 sodium-glucose transport (SGLT-2) inhibitors used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. SGLT2 is responsible for at least 90% of renal glucose reabsorption (SGLT1 being responsible for the remaining 10%). Blocking this transporter causes up to 119 grams of blood glucose per day to be eliminated through the urine, corresponding to 476 kilocalories. Additional water is eliminated by osmotic diuresis, resulting in a lowering of blood pressure.

How to use
Canagliflozin inhibits Na+-dependent 14C-AMG uptake in CHO-hSGLT2 cells, with an IC50 of 4.4±1.2 nM. Similar IC50 values are obtained in CHO-rSGLT2 and CHO-mSGLT2 cells (IC50 = 3.7 and 2.0 nM for rat and mouse SGLT2, respectively). Canagliflozin inhibits 14C-AMG uptake in CHO-hSGLT1 and mSGLT1 cells with IC50 of 684±159 nM and >1, 000 nM, respectively.
Canagliflozin (30 mg/kg treatment for 4 weeks) reduced blood glucose (BG) levels, respiratory exchange ratio, and body weight gain in DIO mice. Canagliflozin (3 mg/kg for 3 weeks) increases urinary glucose excretion (UGE) with no significant change in total food intake compared with that in vehicle-treated rats, leading to a decrease in body weight In ZF rats.
