3-Keto Valproic Acid Sodium Salt is the sodium salt of the main metabolite of Valproic Acid. 3-Keto Valproic Acid is produced from Valproic Acid metabolism by β-oxidation and may be useful for monitoring the metabolism of Valproic Acid in vitro . The parent compound, Valproic Acid, is a branched chain, fatty acid which is reported to potentially enhance central GABAergic neurotransmission and inhibit Na+ channels. Currently, the various molecular mechanisms of action of Valproic Acid have not been completely elucidated. Valproic Acid has been reported to be a potent inhibitor of histone deacetylases (HDACs) in vitro. Valproic Acid is also noted to relieve HDAC-dependent transcriptional repression and causes the hyperacetylation of histones in cultured cells. In animal studies, Valproic Acid has been observed to reduce tumor growth and metastasis formation. Additionally, Valproic Acid is reported to activate Wnt-dependent gene expression and to mimic trichostatin A (sc-3511) in the inhibition of histone deacetylase.
