2-Bromopalmitic acid is a fatty acid oxidation inhibitor. It inhibits carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1 (CPT1) and is also an inhibitor of protein palmitoylation. It significantly increases retinoic acid receptor alpha (RARα) protein level at a concentration of 5 μM. It overcomes all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) resistance in acute promyelocytic leukemia.
