Sodium Butyrate

Sodium Butyrate

Sodium Butyrate is a sodium salt of butyrate which has antineoplastic properties. Butyrate is a short-chain fatty acid that bonds together with zinc sites of class I and II histone deacetylases competitively (HDACs).

This bond can affect histone hyperacetylation, which can modify DNA conformation and lead to chromatin uncoiling or relaxing. It can increase chromatin accessibility to transcription-regulatory complexes that can repress cell cycle-related genes. It can also affect the proteome and gene expression pathways in body cells.
