  • Cell permeable, potent and selective class IIb HDAC6 inhibitor (IC50 =114nM). Displays selectivity over other HDACs (IC50=1-8µM).
  • Neuroprotective and anti-neuroinflammatory agent. Reduced neuronal degeneration after traumatic brain injury (TBI).
  • Shown to increase histone H3 acetylation.
  • 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.
