Inhibition of histone deacetylases (HDACs) by valproic acid (VPA) attenuates inflammatory, hypertrophic, and fibrotic responses in the hearts of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs); however, the molecular mechanism is still unclear. We hypothesized that HDAC inhibition (HDACi) attenuates cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis through acetylation of(More)
CG200745 is a novel inhibitor of histone deacetylases (HDACs), initially developed for treatment of various hematological and solid cancers. Because it is water-soluble, it can be administered orally. We hypothesized that the HDAC inhibitor, CG200745, attenuates cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis in deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-induced hypertensive(More)
Histone deacetylases (HDACs) act as corepressors in gene transcription by altering the acetylation of histones, resulting in epigenetic gene silencing. We previously reported that HDAC3 acts as a coactivator of the mineralocorticoid receptor (MR). Although HDAC3 forms complexes with class II HDACs, their potential role in the transcriptional activity of MR(More)
