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.
