  • Cell-permeable PKA activator
  • Compound used to study neurogenesis
Dibutyryl-cAMP (DB-cAMP) is a cell-permeable cAMP analog that preferentially activates cAMP-dependent protein kinase (e.g. protein kinase A) and inhibits phosphodiesterases. Used together with other compounds, DB-cAMP increases survival rate and promote differentiation of neural stem/progenitor cells into neurons in vivo. DB-cAMP also has anti-inflammatory properties and can be used to facilitate wound healing. Caution: Due to extra- and intra-cellular esterases, DB-cAMP releases butyrate, which may have distinct biological effects.
