Tubastatin A, Hydrochloride Salt, >99%
Catalog Number: T-5335
- Tubastatin A is a histone deacetylase (HDAC) 6 inhibitor. It inhibited HDAC6 with an IC50 of 15 nM, also inhibited HDAC1 (IC50 = 16.4 μM) and HDAC8 (IC50 = 0.85 μM), but not other HDACs (IC50 > 30 μM). It induced the acetylation of [alpha]-tubulin and protected primary cortical neurons against glutathione depletion-induced oxidative stress. Butler K.V., et al.

- Tubastatin A restored the expression of primary cilia in cholangiocarcinoma cell lines, decreased cell proliferation, and inhibited anchorage-independent growth. These effects of tubastatin A were blocked by stable transfection of IFT88-shRNA, which prevented cholangiocarcinoma cells from regenerating cilia. Tubastatin A also inhibited the tumor growth in a cholangiocarcinoma animal model. Gradilone S.A., et al. "HDAC6 inhibition restores ciliary expression and decreases tumor growth." Cancer Res. 73: 2259-2270 (2013).
- HDAC6 inhibition either by HDAC6 knockout or with tubastatin A promoted Foxp3(+) T-regulatory cell inhibitory activity in models of inflammation and autoimmunity. It blocked the development and progression of murine colitis and prevented allograft rejection in mice. de Zoeten E.F., et al.
