Summaries for HDAC4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HDAC4 Gene

  • Histones play a critical role in transcriptional regulation, cell cycle progression, and developmental events. Histone acetylation/deacetylation alters chromosome structure and affects transcription factor access to DNA. The protein encoded by this gene belongs to class II of the histone deacetylase/acuc/apha family. It possesses histone deacetylase activity and represses transcription when tethered to a promoter. This protein does not bind DNA directly, but through transcription factors MEF2C and MEF2D. It seems to interact in a multiprotein complex with RbAp48 and HDAC3. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for HDAC4 Gene

HDAC4 (Histone Deacetylase 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HDAC4 include Chromosome 2Q37 Deletion Syndrome and Albright's Hereditary Osteodystrophy. Among its related pathways are Apelin signaling pathway and HIV Life Cycle. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding and transcription factor binding. An important paralog of this gene is HDAC5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HDAC4 Gene

  • 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. Involved in muscle maturation via its interaction with the myocyte enhancer factors such as MEF2A, MEF2C and MEF2D. Involved in the MTA1-mediated epigenetic regulation of ESR1 expression in breast cancer. Deacetylates HSPA1A and HSPA1B at Lys-77 leading to their preferential binding to co-chaperone STUB1 (PubMed:27708256).

Tocris Summary for HDAC4 Gene

  • Histone deacetylases (HDACs) are a group of enzymes closely related to sirtuins. They catalyze acetyl group removal from lysine residues in histones and non-histone proteins, causing transcriptional repression. HDACs are usually components of multiprotein complexes.

Post-translational modifications for HDAC4 Gene

  • Phosphorylated by CaMK4 at Ser-246, Ser-467 and Ser-632. Phosphorylation at other residues by CaMK2D is required for the interaction with 14-3-3. Phosphorylation at Ser-350, within the PxLPxI/L motif, impairs the binding of ANKRA2 but generates a high-affinity docking site for 14-3-3.
  • Sumoylation on Lys-559 is promoted by the E3 SUMO-protein ligase RANBP2, and prevented by phosphorylation by CaMK4.

Localization for HDAC4 Gene

Subcellular locations from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HDAC4 Gene

Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Shuttles between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. Upon muscle cells differentiation, it accumulates in the nuclei of myotubes, suggesting a positive role of nuclear HDAC4 in muscle differentiation. The export to cytoplasm depends on the interaction with a 14-3-3 chaperone protein and is due to its phosphorylation at Ser-246, Ser-467 and Ser-632 by CaMK4 and SIK1. The nuclear localization probably depends on sumoylation.

  • Brachydactyly-mental retardation syndrome (BDMR) [MIM:600430]: A syndrome resembling the physical anomalies found in Albright hereditary osteodystrophy. Common features are mild facial dysmorphism, congenital heart defects, distinct brachydactyly type E, mental retardation, developmental delay, seizures, autism spectrum disorder, and stocky build. Soft tissue ossification is absent, and there are no abnormalities in parathyroid hormone or calcium metabolism. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20691407, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23188045, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24715439}. Note=The gene represented in this entry is involved in disease pathogenesis. HDAC4 point mutations and chromosomal microdeletions encompassing this gene have been found in BDMR patients (PubMed:20691407, PubMed:24715439, PubMed:23188045). However, HDAC4 haploinsufficiency is not fully penetrant and multiple genes may contribute to manifestation of the full phenotypic spectrum (PubMed:24715439, PubMed:23188045). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20691407, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23188045, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24715439}.
