HDAC4

HDAC4

A gene on chromosome 2q37.3 that encodes histone deacetylase 4; it belongs to class II of the histone deacetylase/acuc/apha family, which has histone deacetylase activity and represses transcription when tethered to a promoter. HDAC4 acts indirectly via transcription factors MEF2C and MEF2D.

In this proposal, we plan to define the role of HDAC4 in muscle regeneration by identifying the targets responsible for the improved regeneration observed in HDAC4 null mice.
Importantly, the team also found that the two affected proteins interacted with one another; HDAC4 binds to ESRRA and inhibits it.

We used the following plasmids for transfections: HDAC1 (plasmid 13820), HDAC3 (plasmid 13819), and HDAC4 (plasmid 13821; all from Addgene).
Our results showed that inhibition of NADPH oxidase activity ameliorated cerebral ischaemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury and among Zn(2+) -dependent HDACs, HDAC4 and HDAC5 were significantly decreased both in vivo and in vitro, which can be reversed by NADPH oxidase inhibitor apocynin.
