Description

General description

Butyric acid is a 4-carbon fatty acid which is a potent differentiation agent for cells and also possesses antiproliferative activity. In cultured mammalian cells it affects growth rate, morphology and gene expression. It also induces apoptosis.

Application

It was used as calibration standard in analysing volatile fatty acids from faecal samples using GLC and HPLC methods.
