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.

India’s Leading Sodium Butyrate Supplier

Usually, Sodium Butyrate is used in pharmaceutical drugs to help with the passive absorption of water in the colon. It can affect

cognitive function in Schizophrenia. Sodium Butyrate can also be used in food consumption as an additive to prevent colon cancer in animals.

WBCIL is one of the top leading sodium butyrate manufacturers in India that provides this pharmaceutical drug at market sodium butyrate price.

Sodium butyrate modulates blood pressure and gut microbiota in maternal tryptophan-free diet-induced hypertension rat offspring

Abstract Maternal nutrition, gut microbiome composition, and metabolites derived from gut microbiota are closely related to the development of hypertension in offspring. A plethora of metabolites generated from diverse tryptophan metabolic pathways show both beneficial and harmful effects. Butyrate, one...

Long-term chemically protected sodium butyrate supplementation in broilers as an antibiotic alternative to dynamically modulate gut microbiota

ABSTRACT Chemically protected sodium butyrate (CSB) is a new kind of sodium butyrate. Our previous study found that 1,000 mg/kg of CSB had the potential capacity of improving growth performance and promoting early development of small intestine in broilers. This...

Sodium Butyrate Attenuates Diabetic Kidney Disease Partially via Histone Butyrylation Modification

Abstract Inflammation and fibrosis are the important pathophysiologic processes in diabetic kidney disease (DKD), which is induced by epigenetics, especially histone posttranslational modification (HPTMs). Recent reports highlighted that butyrate, one of the short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) primarily originated from the...

Microbiota changes induced by microencapsulated sodium butyrate in patients with inflammatory bowel disease

Abstract Background: Butyrate has shown anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties, providing symptomatic relief when orally supplemented in patients suffering from various colonic diseases. We investigated the effect of a colonic-delivery formulation of butyrate on the fecal microbiota of patients with inflammatory...

Sodium butyrate in both prevention and supportive treatment of colorectal cancer

Abstract Accumulating evidence suggests that selected microbiota-derived metabolites play a significant role in both tumor prevention and supportive treatment of cancer. Short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), i.e., mainly acetate, proprionate, and butyrate, are one of them. Nowadays, it is known that...
