Product Details

Biological Activity

Tubastatin A hydrochloride is a potent HDAC6 inhibitor (IC50 = 0.015 μM). Exhibits some selectively for HDAC6 over HDAC8 and 1 (IC50 values are 0.854 and 16.4 μM, respectively). Induces elevated levels of α-tubulin and protects against glutathione-induced oxidative stress in primary neuronal cell culture. Reverses the axonal loss in peripheral neurons in a mouse model of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.
