Functional Family Histone deacetylase 8

Enzyme Information
Histone deacetylase.
based on mapping to UniProt Q9BY41
Hydrolysis of an N(6)-acetyl-lysine residue of a histone to yield a deacetylated histone.
-!- A class of enzymes that remove acetyl groups from N(6)-acetyl-lysine residues on a histone. -!- The reaction of this enzyme is opposite to that of EC -!- Histone deacetylases (HDACs) can be organized into three classes depending on sequence similarity and domain organization. -!- Histone acetylation plays an important role in regulation of gene expression. -!- In eukaryotes, HDACs play a key role in the regulation of transcription and cell proliferation. -!- May be identical to EC
