  • Cell permeable potent and selective class IIb histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6) inhibitor (IC50=15nM, >1000-fold selective against other HDACs and 60-fold for HDAC8).
  • Neuroprotective. Effectively prevents neuronal cell death (by ≥95% at 10µM) upon oxidative stress induction by HCA and selectively induces cellular α-tubulin, but not histone H4, hyperacetylation (2.5 to 5µM) in primary rat cortical neuron cultures.
  • Improves cognition in Alzheimer's disease transgenic mice.
  • Exhibits cardioprotective and anticancer chemotherapeutic activities. Reduces tumor growth and cell proliferation and induces cell cycle arrest in G1.
  • Inhibits TNFα (IC50=272nM) and IL-6 (IC50=712nM) in LPS-stimulated human THP-1 macrophages and displays anti-inflammatory activity in animal models.
  • Antileishmanial.
  • HDAC6 deacetylates tubulin, HSP90 and the core histones (H2A, H2B, H3, H4). Histone deacetylases act via the formation of large multiprotein complexes. HDAC6 plays an important role in microtubule-dependent cell motility, transcriptional regulation, degradation of misfolded proteins and cell cycle and is involved in autophagy, inflammation, cancer and neurodegeneration.
