Description: Scriptaid, also known as GCK 1026, is a HDAC inhibitor. Scriptaid protects against traumatic brain injury via modulation of PTEN and AKT pathway. Scriptaid improves in vitro development and nuclear reprogramming of somatic cell nuclear transfer bovine embryos. Scriptaid enhances the response of human tumor cells to radiation. Scriptaid, induces glioma cell apoptosis through JNK activation and inhibits telomerase activity.
