Sodium butyrate enhances the activities of membranal enzymes and increases drug sensitivity in a cell line from ascitic fluid of an ovarian carcinoma patient.


The effect of sodium butyrate was examined on the growth and phenotypic expression of a cell line derived from the ascitic fluid of an untreated patient with ovarian carcinoma. The chemical inducer of differentiation, sodium butyrate, markedly enhances the activity of the membrane-bound glycoprotein enzymes, alkaline phosphatase and gamma-glutamyl… (More)
