Recombinant Human Histone Deacetylase 8

Cat. No.: HDAC8-1655H
Description: HDAC8 is a member of the class I Histone Deacetylases. HDAC8 are important enzymes for the transcriptional regulation of gene expression in eukaryotic cells. HDAC8 catalyze the removal of acetyl groups from lysines near the N-termini of histones. Human HDAC8 have been implicated in a variety of human diseases such as cardiomyopathy, osteodystrophy, neurodegenerative disorders, aging and cancer. Expression of HDAC8 is restricted to cells showing smooth muscle differentiation in normal human tissue and is a novel marker of smooth muscle differentiation. Like other class I and II HDAC members, the activity of HDAC8 is sensitive to HDAC inhibitor Trichostatin A (TSA).
Biological Activity: Activity of rh-HDAC8 was tested using Arg-His-Lys (Ac)-Ly (Ac)-AMC, a fluorogenic, acetylated peptide based on residues 379-382 of p53 as a substrate.
