HC Toxin is a potent, cell-permeable HDAC (histone deacetylase) inhibitor. HC Toxin inhibits HDACs in maize, Physarum and chicken. HC Toxin has displayed antiprotozoal and antineoplastic activity. HC toxin has induced the expression of the gamma-globin gene in erythroid cells. Antiproliferative activity against T47D human breast cancer cells and cultured mastocytoma cells has been observed with HC toxin treatment.
