[Histone deacetylase inhibitors as a new generation of anti-cancer agents].

The acetylation and deacetylation of histones mediated by histone acetylases and deacetylases influence DNA accessibility to factors regulating replication, repair, and transcription. Histone deacetylases inhibitors (HDI) are inducers of growth arrest, differentiation, and/or apoptosis of many tumors cells by altering the transcription of a small number of… (More)
