Histone deacetylase (HDAC) proteins are promising targets for cancer treatment, as shown by the recent FDA approval of the HDAC inhibitor suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA, Vorinostat) for the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. To identify additional potent inhibitors and characterize HDAC mutant proteins, there is interest to develop an(More)
Histone deacetylase 1 (HDAC1) is an epigenetic enzyme that regulates key cellular processes, such as cell proliferation, apoptosis, and cell survival, by deacetylating histone substrates. Aberrant expression of HDAC1 is implicated in multiple diseases, including cancer. As a consequence, HDAC inhibitors have emerged as effective anti-cancer drugs. HDAC(More)
