Anacardic Acid is a pentadecane aliphatic chain containing hydroxylcarboxylic acid. The acid is an effective inhibitor of the activities of p300, p300/CBP associated factor histone acetyltransferase, prostaglandin synthase (PTGS2 or Cox-2), tyrosinase, urease-α and -β, lipoxygenase (LO), and xanthine oxidase. Additionally, it has been shown to potently inhibit HAT-dependent transcription and SUMOylation, as well as decrease expression of NF-κB regulated gene products at high concentrations. Research suggests that anacardic acid is a potent activator of ARK-1 (Aurora kinase A) mediated phosphorylation of histone H3 while leaving ARK-2 unaffected in vitro. Anacardic acid has demonstrated bactericidal activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
