Anacardic acid is a histone acetyltransferase (HAT) inhibitor. It inhibits the HAT activity of the transcription co-activators p300 and p300/CREB-biding protein associated factor (pCAF) with IC50 values of 8.5 and 5 µM. It has been shown to display a variety of biological activities, including antibacterial, antimicrobial, prostaglandin synthase inhibition, tyrosinase, and lipoxygenase inhibition. Anacardic acid has been shown to decrease expression of NF-κB regulated gene products including, invasion, inflammation, proliferation and cell survival. It has also been linked to be a potent activator of Aurora Kinase A (ARK-1) mediated phosphorylation of histone H3.
