General annotation (Comments)

Function

Responsible for the deacetylation of lysine residues on the N-terminal part of the core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4). Histone deacetylation gives a tag for epigenetic repression and plays an important role in transcriptional regulation, cell cycle progression and developmental events. Histone deacetylases act via the formation of large multiprotein complexes By similarity.

Catalytic activity

Hydrolysis of an N(6)-acetyl-lysine residue of a histone to yield a deacetylated histone.

Cofactor

Binds 1 divalent metal cation per subunit.

Enzyme regulation

Its activity is inhibited by trichostatin A (TSA) and butyrate, 2 well known histone deacetylase inhibitors By similarity.

Subcellular location

Nucleus By similarity. Cytoplasm By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the histone deacetylase family. HD type 1 subfamily.
