Product Information
Description: Sodium butyrate is the sodium salt of butyric acid, which has been reported to cause hyperacetylation of histones due to its role as a HDAC inhibitor with IC50 values of 0.3, 0.4, 0.3 mM for HDAC1, 2 and 7 respectively.
Stability and Solubility Advice: Information concerning product stability, particularly in solution, has rarely been reported and in most cases we can only offer a general guide.
We recommend that stock solutions, once prepared, are stored aliquoted in tightly sealed vials and used within 1 month. Avoid repeated freeze and thaw cycles. Storage conditions for some special products should refer to their storage details.
