Biological descriptionInhibits HAT activity of p300 and p300/CREB-binding protein-associated factor (pCAF) (IC50 = 8.5 and 5 μM, respectively). Suppresses NF-κB activation, inhibits IκBα phosphorylation and prohibits p65 nuclear translocation
Chemical name2-Hydroxy-6-pentadecylbenzoic acid
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. It is important to note that this product is reported to be light sensitive. Store In the Dark. Store under desiccating conditions.
Solubility overviewSoluble in ethanol to 25 mM and in DMSO to 25 mM
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
