Scientific Description
Acetylation of lysine is an important, reversible modification. The activities of some proteins are controlled by acetylation of lysine. Histone acetyltransferases (HATs) acetylate the conserved amino-terminal domains of the four core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4) that contain lysine residues. Histone deacetylases (HDACs) remove the acetyl group from the same residue. [1] Acetylation/deacetylation of histones results in cell signalling processes that include gene activity, cell growth, differentiation and apoptosis. [2] In cancer and polyglutamine diseases, the regulation of protein acetylation/deacetylation is impaired (7). Numerous anti-cancer drugs target HDACs. [3]
