AU - McKinsey, Timothy A.. AU - Olson, Eric N.. PY - 2002/10. Y1 - 2002/10. N2 - Class II histone deacetylases (HDACs) 4, 5, 7, and 9 repress muscle differentiation through associations with the myocyte enhancer factor 2 (MEF2) transcription factor. MEF2-interacting transcription repressor (MITR) is an amino-terminal splice variant of HDAC9 that also potently inhibits MEF2 transcriptional activity despite lacking a catalytic domain. Here we report that MITR, HDAC4, and HDAC5 associate with heterochromatin protein 1 (HP1), an adaptor protein that recognizes methylated lysines within histone tails and mediates transcriptional repression by recruiting histone methyltransferase. Promyogenic signals provided by calcium/ calmodulin-dependent kinase (CaMK) disrupt the interaction of MITR and HDACs with HP1. ...

ObjectiveTo examine the ability of a broad-spectrum histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor to protect cartilage in vivo, and to explore the effects of class-selective HDAC inhibitors and small interfering RNA (siRNA)-induced knockdown of HDACs on metalloproteinase expression and cartilage degradation in vitro. MethodsA destabilization of the medial meniscus (DMM) model was used to assess the in vivo activity of the HDAC inhibitor trichostatin A (TSA). Human articular chondrocytes (HACs) and SW-1353 chondrosarcoma cells were treated with cytokines and TSA, valproic acid, MS-275, or siRNA, and quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction was performed to determine the effect of treatment on metalloproteinase expression. HDAC inhibitor activity was detected by Western blotting. A bovine nasal cartilage (BNC) explant assay was performed to measure cartilage resorption in vitro. ResultsSystemically administered TSA protected cartilage in the DMM model. TSA, valproic acid, and MS-275 ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The pancreatic duodenal homeobox-1 protein (Pdx-1) interacts with histone deacetylases Hdac-1 and Hdac-2 on low levels of glucose. AU - Mosley, Amber L.. AU - Özcan, Sabire. PY - 2004/12/24. Y1 - 2004/12/24. N2 - We have previously demonstrated that high concentrations of glucose stimulate insulin gene expression by causing hyperacetylation of histone H4 at the insulin gene promoter. Furthermore, we have shown that the glucose-mediated hyperacetylation of histone H4 depends on the recruitment of the histone acetyltransferase p300 by the beta cell-specific transcription factor Pdx-1. In this study, we demonstrate that the histone deacetylases Hdac-1 and Hdac-2 are rapidly recruited to the insulin promoter in the mouse insulinoma cell line MIN6 when cells are switched from high to low glucose media. Moreover, we demonstrate that the beta cell-specific homeodomain protein Pdx-1 interacts with histone deacetylases Hdac-1 and Hdac-2 at low levels of glucose. In vitro studies indicate ...

Activity:. TMP195 is a selective class IIa histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor with an IC50 of 300 nM. IC50 & Target: IC50: 300 nM (HDAC), 9 nM (HDAC9), 46 nM (HDAC7), 106 nM (HDAC5) , 111 nM (HDAC4), 11700 nM (HDAC8), 47800 nM (HDAC6)[1] In Vitro: TMP195 blocks the accumulation of CCL2 protein in the supernatants of monocyte-derived macrophage differentiation cultures. TMP195 significantly increases the amount of CCL1 protein secreted by the monocytes compared to vehicle group. In the transcriptional profiling data from the PHA-stimulated PBMC experiments, CCL2 and CCL1 are respectively down- or upregulated by TMP195[1]. TMP195 occupies the acetyllysine-binding site of class IIa HDACs. TMP195 competes against binding of HDAC7 to a variety of side-chain modifications on the same peptide backbone, despite no interference with the activity of other acetyllysine reader proteins BRD4 (IC50>50 μM)[2]. In Vivo: TMP195 treatment alters the tumour microenvironment and reduces tumour burden and ...
There is an FDA-approved drug for this cancer, called vorinostat, also known as suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA). We have also mentioned this before, because the compound is a histone deacetylase (HDAC) enzyme inhibitor. HDAC enzymes have the effect of turning off genes, so an inhibitor of a particular HDAC enzyme has the effect of allowing the genes to remain turned on. Some cancers develop because they cause the overexpression of a HDAC enzyme that then turns off genes which would otherwise suppress the cancer. So an inhibitor of the approriate HDAC enzyme boosts the expression of the affected cancer-fighting genes. This is how vorinostat works ...
Histone deacetylases (HDACs) enzymes, which affect the acetylation status of histones and other important cellular proteins, have been recognized as potentially useful therapeutic targets for a broad range of human disorders. Emerging studies have demonstrated that different types of HDAC inhibitors show beneficial effects in various experimental models of neurological disorders. HDAC enzymes comprise a large family of proteins, with18 HDAC enzymes currently identified in humans. Hence, an important question for HDAC inhibitor therapeutics is which HDAC enzyme(s) is/are important for the amelioration of disease phenotypes, as it has become clear that individual HDAC enzymes play different biological roles in the brain. This review will discuss evidence supporting the involvement of HDAC1 and HDAC3 in polyglutamine disorders, including Huntingtons disease, and the use of HDAC1- and HDAC3-selective HDAC inhibitors as therapeutic intervention for these disorders. Further, while HDAC inhibitors are known

Emerging evidence highlights a critical role for protein acetylation during herpesvirus infection. As prominent modulators of protein acetylation, histone deacetylases (HDACs) are essential transcriptional and epigenetic regulators. Not surprisingly, viruses have evolved a wide array of mechanisms to subvert HDAC functions. Here, we review the mechanisms underlying HDAC regulation during herpesvirus infection. We next discuss the roles of acetylation in host defense against herpesvirus infection. Finally, we provide a perspective on the contribution of current mass spectrometry-based

Metastasis-associated protein 1 (MTA1) is highly upregulated in cancer cells with metastatic potential; however, the molecular mechanism by which MTA1 increases the metastatic potential of cancer cells is unknown. We characterized the functional consequences of MTA1 overexpression in cancer cells with an emphasis on its potential role as a deacetylator of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α). MTA1 increased the expression of HIF-1α protein, but did not increase the expression of its mRNA. Glutathione S-transferase pull-down and coimmunoprecipitation assays demonstrated direct interaction of MTA1 with HIF-1α both in vitro and in vivo. Immunoprecipitation and acetylation assays also showed that MTA1 has deacetylation activity on HIF-1α in vivo. Moreover, MTA1 increased the transcriptional activity of HIF-1α and enhanced the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor, a target molecule of HIF-1α. Conditioned medium collected from MTA1 transfectants also increased angiogenesis in vitro ...
In certain respects, this work is consistent with an equally counterintuitive report that HDAC inhibitors can block hypertrophic growth and associated fetal gene induction in cultured cardiomyocytes (15), contrary to the expectation that HDACs suppress a pro-hypertrophic pathway (2). Trichostatin A inhibits both class I and class II HDACs, and growth suppression by HDAC inhibitors need not be specific to Hop and its partners. Nevertheless, the present study is highly noteworthy, from both a mechanistic and a translational point of view. HDAC inhibitors are well tolerated in humans, and clinical trials investigating their efficacy as anticancer agents are currently underway (16). If cardiac hypertrophy is construed to be an adverse adaptation, as supported by the preponderance of evidence (1), and if cardiac function can be preserved even in the face of stress when hypertrophy is blocked (17), the therapeutic merit of HDAC inhibitors in heart failure is potentially important.. The apparent ...
Abstract Thymocyte development is tightly regulated, requiring successful transit of cells through several developmental stages and checkpoints prior to thymic egress. Each checkpoint of thymocyte development, involves induction or repression of a particular set of genes. Disruptions in gene regulation leads to developmental arrest, a failure to generate T cells and deficits in adaptive immunity. Gene expression is coordinated by transcriptional activators, repressors, and chromatin modifiers. In general, histone acetylation promotes gene expression while histone deacetylation leads to repression. We investigated the role of histone deacetylase-3 (HDAC3) in T cell development using CD2-icre conditional knockout (HDAC3- cKO) mice. Although T cells co-express several HDAC family members during development, these other HDAC family members cannot compensate for the loss of HDAC3 as HDAC3-cKO mice have a block in T cell development at the DP stage due to an inability to undergo positive selection. ...
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Dysregulation of histone deacetylase expression and enzymatic activity is associated with a number of diseases. It has been reported that protein levels of histone deacetylase (HDAC)1 and HDAC5 increase during human pulmonary hypertension, and that the enzymatic activity of HDAC6 is induced in a chronic hypertensive animal model. This study investigated the protein expression profiles of class I and II a/b HDACs in three systemic hypertension models. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: We used three different hypertensive animal models: (i) Wistar-Kyoto rats (n=8) and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR; n=8), (ii) mice infused with saline or angiotensin II to induce hypertension, via osmotic mini-pump for 2 weeks, and (iii) mice that were allowed to drink L-N(G)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) to induce hypertension ...
HIV-1 hijacks host cell machinery to ensure successful replication, including cytoskeletal components for intracellular trafficking, nucleoproteins for pre-integration complex import, and the ESCRT pathway for assembly and budding. It is widely appreciated that cellular post-translational modifications (PTMs) regulate protein activity within cells; however, little is known about how PTMs influence HIV replication. Previously, we reported that blocking deacetylation of tubulin using histone deacetylase inhibitors promoted the kinetics and efficiency of early post-entry viral events. To uncover additional PTMs that modulate entry and early post-entry stages in HIV infection, we employed a flow cytometric approach to assess a panel of small molecule inhibitors on viral fusion and LTR promoter-driven gene expression. While viral fusion was not significantly affected, early post-entry viral events were modulated by drugs targeting multiple processes including histone deacetylation, methylation, and
Catalytic component of the RPD3 histone deacetylase (HDAC) complexes RPD3C(L) and RPD3C(S) responsible for the deacetylation of lysine residues on the N-terminal part of the core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4). Histone deacetylation plays an important role in transcriptional regulation, cell cycle progression, DNA damage response, osmotic stress response and developmental events. Is involved in rDNA and telomere silencing and in double strand breaks repair. Required for both full transcription repression and activation of many genes including cell type-specific genes (STE6, TY2 and HO), cell differentiation-specific genes (SPO13), genes that respond to external signals (PHO5) and TRK2. The RPD3 complexes regulate also chromosomal replication timing ...
Recombinant Human HDAC8 (Histone Deacetylase 8) active enzyme for research use in Epigenetics, chromatin modification, myogenesis and apoptosis.
The work in my laboratory focuses on determining the normal function of the AML1/RUNX1 transcription factor in the regulation of hematopoietic gene expression and the mechanism by which the t(8;21), inv(16), and the t(12;21) chromosomal translocations disrupt normal AML-1 function to promote acute leukemia. We have defined AML-1 as a transcription factor that binds the enhancer core motif, which regulates the expression of a large number of tissue specific genes. Transcriptional studies demonstrated that AML1 both activates and represses transcription, and that the translocation fusion proteins inhibit expression of AML1-dependent target genes. We have determined that the t(8;21) fusion protein, AML1/ETO, interacts with the mSin3 and nuclear hormone co-repressors that recruit histone deacetylases to repress transcription. This initial observation led us to demonstrate that the t(12;21) and inv(16) proteins also associate with co-repressors and histone deacetylases. Thus, we have identified a
Objective: Oxidative stress is involved in the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Corticosteroid fails to suppress inflammation and oxidative stress due to steroid resistance. Theophylline has an effect on histone deacetylase (HDAC) activity and improves steroid sensitivity in COPD. Given changes in oxidative stress associated with diminished corticosteroid effects, a clinical study in which antioxidants and free radicals are estimated can suggest a correlation between antioxidants, theophylline, and corticosteroid sensitivity. Materials and Methods: A randomized controlled study was conducted in 60 participants divided into 4 groups: Group I (controls) - 15 normal healthy volunteers, Group II - COPD patients who received theophylline 300 mg + salbutamol 8 mg, Group III - patients who inhaled budesonide 400 μg + salbutamol 8 mg, and Group IV - theophylline 300 mg + inhaled budesonide 400 μg + salbutamol 8 mg 12 weeks.

Chameau HAT and DRpd3 HDAC function as antagonistic cofactors of JNK/AP-1-dependent transcription during Drosophila metamorphosis
The activities of most if not all HDACs are regulated by protein-protein interactions. In addition, many HDACs are regulated by post-translational modifications as well as by subcellular localization. HDACs generally exist as a component of stable large multi-subunit complexes, and most, if not all, HDACs interact with other cellular proteins. With the exception of mammalian HDAC8, most purified recombinant HDACs are enzymatically inactive [46]. Any protein that associates with HDACs, therefore, has the potential to activate or inhibit the enzymatic activity of HDACs. Likewise, HDACs, in general, have no DNA binding activity, therefore, any DNA-binding protein that targets HDACs to DNA or to histones potentially can affect HDAC function.. Human HDAC1 and HDAC2 exist together in at least three distinct multi-protein complexes called the Sin3, the NuRD, and the Co-repressor of REST (RE1 silencing transcription factor, CoREST) complexes [46](Figure 5). Sin3 and NuRD complexes share a core comprised ...

摘要:Histone deacetylases (HDACs) have attracted a great deal of interest as anticancer drug targets, and many HDAC inhibitors (HDACIs) have displayed clinical efficacy in treating specific tumors. However, all of these agents have significant toxicity, including fatigue, nausea, vomiting, thrombocytopenia, and neutropenia. Thus, increased effort is being directed toward developing selective HDACIs that are tolerated better and cause fewer adverse reactions. This article focuses mainly on the N-hydroxycinnamamide-based HDAC 1/3 dual inhibitors, and this article outlines the anticancer potential of these inhibitors. Since selective HDAC1/3 inhibitors may cause fewer adverse reactions than selective pan-HDACIs and selective Class Ι inhibitors in clinical settings, further study of their mechanism of anticancer activity and optimization of their structure is warranted. ...
Introduction: Downregulation of tumor suppressor genes, evasion from apoptosis, and reduced differentiation are hallmarks of cancer that can be due to abnormal epigenetic control. Histone deacetylase (HDAC) is an enzyme involved in the deacetylation of histone proteins, resulting in chromatin remodelling and altered gene transcription. HDAC inhibitors are emerging as useful anticancer drugs ...
Saksouk, N., Bhatti, M. M., Kieffer, S., Smith, A. T., Musset, K., Garin, J., Sullivan, W. J. Jr, Cesbron-Delauw, M. F., Hakimi, M. A. (2005 Dec, Mol Cell Biol). Pathogenic apicomplexan parasites like Toxoplasma and Plasmodium (malaria) have complex life cycles consisting of multiple stages. The ability to differentiate from one stage to another requires dramatic transcriptional changes, yet there is a paucity of transcription factors in these protozoa. In contrast, we show here that Toxoplasma possesses extensive chromatin remodeling machinery that modulates gene expression relevant to differentiation. We find that, as in other eukaryotes, histone acetylation and arginine methylation are marks of gene activation in Toxoplasma. We have identified mediators of these histone modifications, as well as a histone deacetylase (HDAC), and correlate their presence at target promoters in a stage-specific manner. We purified the first HDAC complex from apicomplexans, which contains novel components in ...
Regulation of endothelial ECM remodeling during development is essential for embryogenesis (Lu et al., 2011), but the transcriptional mechanisms involved are poorly understood. We found that Ezh2 stabilizes the developing vasculature by repressing a transcriptional pathway that activates Mmp9 (Fig. 4F). Other chromatin modifiers such as the histone deacetylase HDAC7 (Chang et al., 2006), the ATP-dependent chromatin remodeler BRG1 (Davis et al., 2013) and the chromodomain-helicase-DNA-binding protein 4, or CHD4, which is an ATPase of the nucleosome-remodeling and histone deacetylase (NuRD) chromatin-remodeling complex (Ingram et al., 2013), function in ECM remodeling and are required for development. Thus, epigenetic control of endothelial gene expression programs at multiple levels is required for ECM homeostasis and embryogenesis.. PRC2 targets numerous transcription factors that regulate developmental transitions in embryonic stem cells, and stably represses specific transcriptional programs ...

Histone deacetylation enzymes have often been associated with the suppression of eukaryotic gene transcription. In contrast, recent studies of inducible gene regulation indicate that protein deacetylation can also be required as a transcriptional activation signal. The concept of protein deacetylation as a requirement for transcription activation seems to contradict earlier conclusions about the function of deacetylation in gene suppression. However, in the context of a more global interpretation, these opposing effects of deacetylation imply its dynamic role in the overall control of gene expression. The exact requirement for deacetylation differs among promoters, depending on their specific architecture and regulation scenario.. ...
We report toxic effects of a photoactivatable platinum(IV) complex conjugated with suberoyl-bis-hydroxamic acid in tumor cells. The conjugate exerts, after photoactivation, two functions: activity as both a platinum(II) anticancer drug and histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor in cancer cells. This approach relies on the use of a Pt-IV pro-drug, acting by two independent mechanisms of biological action in a cooperative manner, which can be selectively photoactivated to a cytotoxic species in and around a tumor, thereby increasing selectivity towards cancer cells. These results suggest that this strategy is a valuable route to design new platinum agents with higher efficacy for photodynamic anticancer chemotherapy ...
Histone deacetylase inhibitors possess a broad array of antitumor activities; however, their net impact on the evolving antitumor immune response is highly dependent on the inhibitors used and the histone deacetylases they target. Herein, we sequentially focus on each stage of the antitumor immune response - from dendritic cell activation and migration, antigen uptake and presentation, T-cell activation and differentiation and the enactment of antitumor effector functions within the tumor microenvironment. In particular, we will discuss how various inhibitors have different effects depending on cellular activation, experimental design and specific histone deacetylases being targeted - and how these changes impact the outcome of an antitumor immune response ...

Histone deacetylases (HDACs), originally described as histone modifiers, have more recently been deMonstrated to target a variety of other proteins unrelated to the chromatin environment. In this context, our present work demonstrates that the pharmacological or genetic abrogation of HDAC6 in primary melanoma samples and cell lines, down-regulates the expression of PD-L1, an important co-stimulatory molecule expressed in cancer cells, which activates the inhibitory regulatory pathway PD-1 in T-cells. Our data suggests that this novel mechanism of PD-L1 regulation is mainly mediated by the influence of HDAC6 over the recruitment and activation of STAT3. Additionally, we observed that selective HDAC6 inhibitors impairs tumor growth and reduce the in vim expression of several inhibitory checkpoint molecules and other regulatory pathways involved in immunosurveillance. Most importantly, these results provide a key pre-clinical rationale and justification to further study isotype selective HDAC6 ...
Introduction: Epigenetic alterations have been identified as key events in the pathogenesis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Previous studies have shown that smoke carcinogen exposure leads to increases in DNA-methyltransferase (DNMT1) protein expression, and subsequent epigenetic alteration - mediating early bronchial carcinogenesis. DNMT1 protein turnover is regulated by posttranslational modifications such as acetylation, phosphorylation and methylation. In lung cancer, increased levels of type I histone deacetylases (HDACs) HDAC1 and HDAC3 have been associated with poor outcomes. Clinically, HDAC inhibitors have shown promise for the treatment of advanced NSCLC.. Methods: In this study we use carcinogen exposed bronchial epithelial cells as a model of early carcinogenesis. We assayed these cells using various methods including soft-agar assays, methylation specific PCR and methylation array, siRNA knockdown, immunoblotting, co-immunoprecipitation and qPCR. We also analyzed a cohort of ...
PHILADELPHIA - Drugs that inhibit the activity of enzymes called histone deacetylases (HDACs) are being widely developed for treating cancer and other diseases, with two already on the market. Researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, show that a major HDAC still functions in mice even when its enzyme activity is abolished, suggesting that the beneficial effects of HDAC inhibitors may not actually be through inhibiting HDAC activity, and thus warranting the reassessment of the molecular targets of this class of drugs.. The study, appearing online in Molecular Cell this week, was conducted in the laboratory of Mitchell A. Lazar, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Institute for Diabetes, Obesity, and Metabolism. The Lazar lab has been working on HDAC3 for over a decade, focusing on the pivotal role of this enzyme in hormone-mediated regulation of gene expression and metabolism. They previously showed that depletion of HDAC3 in mouse liver upregulates expression of many ...

The power of interferons (IFNs) to inhibit viral replication and cellular proliferation is well established but the specific contribution of each IFN-stimulated gene (ISG) to these biological responses remains to be completely understood. In addition ISG54 was not able to promote cell death in the absence of pro-apoptotic Bcl family members Bax and Bak. Analyses of binding partners of ISG54 uncovered association with two homologous protein ISG56/IFIT1 and ISG60/IFIT3. Furthermore ISG60 binding regulates the apoptotic ramifications of GDC-0973 ISG54 negatively.
