Product Introduction

Sodium butanoate (Sodium Butyrate) is the sodium salt of butyrate with potential antineoplastic activity. Butyrate, a short chain fatty acid, competitively binds to the zinc sites of class I and II histone deacetylases (HDACs).
In vitro
Sodium butyrate enhances the acetylation of histones and specific protein-1 while concurrently inhibiting the neurotoxicity induced by 3-nitropropionic acid. In the R6/2 transgenic mouse model of Huntington's disease, sodium butyrate effectively delays the onset of symptoms and prolongs the survival period.
In vivo
Sodium butyrate exhibits anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects in the colonic mucosa, reducing oxidative stress and thus inhibiting the growth of colon cancer cells. It also induces apoptosis in the RG/C2 and AA/Cl adenoma cell lines.
Cell Research
Cells are seeded at a density of 2,000 cells/well in 96-well plates with 200 μL culture medium containing Sodium Butyrate at different concentrations. Then, the cells are consecutively cultured for 72 h. Every 24 h, 20 μL 5 mg/mL MTT solution is added into the corresponding well, and the cells are cultured for another 4 h. Then, the solution is replaced with 150 μL dimethylsulfoxide, followed by gentle agitation of the plates for 15 min at room temperature. Finally, the absorbance at 492 nm is measured to represent the cell viability.
AliasSodium Butyrate, Butanoic acid sodium salt

In Vivo Formulation Calculator (Clear solution)

Please enter your animal experiment information in the following box and click Calculate to obtain the mother liquor preparation method and in vivo formula preparation method:
For example, your dosage is 10 mg/kg,each TargetMol | Animal experiments animal weighs 20 g, and the dosage volume is 100 μL. A total of TargetMol | Animal experiments 10 animals were administered, and the formula you used is 5% TargetMol | reagent DMSO+30% PEG300+5% Tween 80+60% ddH2O. So your working solution concentration is 2 mg/mL.
Mother liquor preparation method: 2 mg of drug dissolved in 50 μLDMSOTargetMol | reagent (mother liquor concentration of 40 mg/mL), if you need to configure a concentration that exceeds the solubility of the product, please contact us first.
Preparation method for in vivo formula: Take 50 μLDMSOTargetMol | reagent main solution, add 300 μLPEG300TargetMol | reagent mix well and clarify, then add 50 more μLTween 80, mix well and clarify, then add 600 more μLddH2OTargetMol | reagent mix well and clarify.
