Sodium butyrate is the sodium salt of butyric acid, used in the culture of mammalian cells. Sodium butyrate inhibits most HDAC except class III HDAC and class II HDAC6 and -10. Sodium butyrate also is the most effective fatty acid in stimulating or repressing the expression of specific genes. Sodium butyrate induces p21 mRNA expression in an immediate-early fashion, through transactivation of a promoter cis-element(s) located within 1.4 kb of the transcriptional start site, independent of p53 binding. Sodium butyrate significantly extends survival in a dose-dependent manner, improves body weight and motor performance, and delays the neuropathological sequelae in the R6/2 transgenic mouse model of Huntington's disease (HD). Sodium butyrate also increases histone and specificity protein-1 acetylation and protects against 3-nitropropionic acid neurotoxicity.

For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
