Chemical Fusaric Acid

Name Fusaric Acid
CAS Type 1 Name 2-Pyridinecarboxylic acid, 5-butyl-
Equivalent Terms 5 Butyl 2 pyridinedicarboxylic Acid | 5-Butyl-2-pyridinedicarboxylic Acid | Acid, 5-Butyl-2-pyridinedicarboxylic | Acid, Fusaric | Calcium Fusarate | Fusarate, Calcium
CAS Registry Number 536-69-6
Definition 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.
