Fusaric Acid

Also known as: 5-Butylpicolinic acid; 5-Butylpyridine-2-carboxylic acid; 536-69-6; Picolinic acid, 5-butyl-; 2-Pyridinecarboxylic acid, 5-butyl-
Molecular Formula: C10H13NO2   Molecular Weight: 179.21572   InChIKey: DGMPVYSXXIOGJY-UHFFFAOYSA-N
A picolinic acid derivative isolated from various Fusarium species. It has been proposed for a variety of therapeutic applications but is primarily used as a research tool. Its mechanisms of action are poorly understood. It probably inhibits DOPAMINE BETA-HYDROXYLASE, the enzyme that converts dopamine to norepinephrine. It may also have other actions, including the inhibition of cell proliferation and DNA synthesis.   From: MeSH
