  • 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. Involved in muscle maturation by repressing transcription of myocyte enhancer MEF2C. During muscle differentiation, it shuttles into the cytoplasm, allowing the expression of myocyte enhancer factors.
  • Tissue specificity

  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the histone deacetylase family. HD type 2 subfamily.
  • Domain

    The nuclear export sequence mediates the shuttling between the nucleus and the cytoplasm.
  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylated by CaMK at Ser-259 and Ser-498. The phosphorylation is required for the export to the cytoplasm. Phosphorylated by the PKC kinases PKN1 and PKN2, impairing nuclear import.
    Ubiquitinated. Polyubiquitination however does not lead to its degradation.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Shuttles between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. In muscle cells, it shuttles into the cytoplasm during myocyte differentiation. The export to cytoplasm depends on the interaction with a 14-3-3 chaperone protein and is due to its phosphorylation at Ser-259 and Ser-498 by CaMK.
