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.
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.
