Target

  • FunctionResponsible 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.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in HDAC4 are the cause of 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.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the histone deacetylase family. HD type 2 subfamily.
  • DomainThe nuclear export sequence mediates the shuttling between the nucleus and the cytoplasm.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated by CaMK4 at Ser-246, Ser-467 and Ser-632. Phosphorylation at other residues is required for the interaction with 14-3-3.
    Sumoylation on Lys-559 is promoted by the E3 SUMO-protein ligase RANBP2, and prevented by phosphorylation by CaMK4.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasm. 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. The nuclear localization probably depends on sumoylation.

  • Predicted band size : 119 kDa

    Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (40 µg)
    Lane 2: HDAC4 knockout HAP1 cell lysate (40 µg)
    Lane 3: HeLa cell lysate (40 µg)
    Lane 4: NIH3T3 cell lysate (40 µg)
    Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab12171 observed at 140 kDa. Red - loading control, ab176560, observed at 52 kDa.

    ab12171 was shown to recognize HDAC4  when HDAC4  knockout samples were used, along with additional cross-reactive bands. Wild-type and HDAC4  knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab12171 and ab176560 (loading control to alpha tubulin) were diluted at 1 µg/ml  and 1:10,000 dilution respectively and incubated overnight at 4C. Blots were developed with IRDye® 800CW Goat anti-Mouse IgG (H + L) and IRDye® 680 Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H + L) secondary antibodies at 1:10,000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
