Canagliflozin hemihydrate is an inhibitor of subtype 2 sodium-glucose transport protein (SGLT2), which is responsible for at least 90% of the glucose reabsorption in the kidney. Canagliflozin hemihydrate inhibits hSGLT2 with IC50 of 2.2 nM, exhibits 413-fold selectivity over hSGLT1. Blocking SGLT2 causes up to 119 grams of blood glucose per day to be eliminated through the urine, corresponding to 476 kilocalories.

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
