Sodium Butyrate Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

white crystalline solid with an unpleasant smell

Uses

Sodium butyrate is a compound with formula Na(C3H7COO). It is the sodium salt of butyric acid. It has various effects on cultured mammalian cells including inhibition of proliferation, induction of differentiation and induction or repression of gene expre

Definition

ChEBI: An organic sodium salt resulting from the replacement of the proton from the carboxy group of butyric acid by a sodium ion.

Biological Activity

Histone deacetylase inhibitor. Restores contextual memory in a transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer's disease. Shown to induce pancreatic progenitor formation. Directs the differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells into hepatocytes when used in combination with the cytokine Activin A.

Purification Methods

Sodium butyrate [156-54-7] M 110.1. Prepare it by neutralising the acid with Na2CO3, and recrystallising it from EtOH. [Beilstein 2 IV 779.]
