An antineoplastic agent that demonstrates potent differentiating capacity in multiple hematopoietic and solid tumor cell lines. Acts as an inducer of tumor cytostasis and differentiation as well as of peroxisomal proliferation. A more effective inhibitor of histone deacetylase and inducer of histone acetylation than its structural analogs including 2- and 3-phenylbutyrate. Acts as a transcriptional regulator and improve the targeting of δF508-CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator) for ubiquitination and degradation by reducing the expression of HSC70 in epithelial cells. Also, reported to increase fetal hemoglobin production in vitro and in vivo.
A novel anti-neoplastic agent and transcriptional regulator. Also acts as an inducer of tumor cytostasis and differentiation. Increases fetal hemoglobin production in vitro and in vivo.
