Sodium butyrate can also be called sodium butyrate, sodium n-butyrate and sodium n-butyrate. White or off white powder, with special cheese rancidity like fat odor. As a deacetylase inhibitor, sodium butyrate can improve the level of histone acetylation. Studies have found that sodium butyrate can inhibit tumor cell proliferation, promote tumor cell aging and apoptosis, which may be related to the improvement of histone acetylation by sodium butyrate.
Butyrate is a saturated monocarboxylic acid with four carbon atoms. It is one of the typical volatile lower fatty acids. Butyrate is transformed into ketone bodies in animal epithelial tissues. Ketone bodies are the products of incomplete oxidation of butyric acid, including acetoacetic acid, p-hydroxybutyric acid and acetone. It belongs to low toxicity category.
Sodium butyrate feed additive can not only promote the intestinal development of early weaned piglets, enhance immunity and prevent various viruses, but also improve the production performance of sows and prevent diarrhea. However, the simultaneous use of sodium butyrate and yeast will have an impact on the growth performance and physiological metabolism of weaned piglets.
