REVIEW Bucladesine is a cyclic nucleotide derivative, mimics the action of endogenous cAMP and is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor. A cell-permeable cAMP analog which preferentially activates cAMP-dependent protein kinase. The products releaes butyrate due to intracellular and extracellular esterase action. Butyrate was shown to have distinct biological effects. The compound is used in a wide variety of research applications because it mimics cAMP and can induce normal physiological responses when added to cells in experimental conditions.
