Valproate sodium is a branched chain fatty acid with anticancer, neuroprotective, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also an inhibitor of histone deacetylase (HDAC) through promotion of transcriptionally active chromatin. This inhibition may regulate the neuroprotective effects of valproic acid. The molecules:VEGF, BNDF andGNDF mediate the effects.
While its mechanism is not well understood, it is suggested that valproate sodium inhibits sodium ion channels.
