Biological Activity for SAHA
SAHA inhibits Class I and II histone deacetylases (HDACs); induces accumulation of acetylated histones H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 in transformed cultured cells. Suppresses cell growth in a range of cancer cell lines; induces apoptosis in cutaneous T cell lymphoma cells in vitro. Activates autophagy. SAHA increases efficiency of transcription factor-induced reprogramming of mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEF) to induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC). Also enhances adeno-associated virus transduction of HeLa cells.

Our lab uses this drug to monitor transcriptional activity of genes that depend on class I, II and IV of histone deacetylase. In the experiment shown in the figure, we have treated PC12 cells with 3 different concentrations of SAHA for 3h. We found increased transcriptional activity of PI3K gene upon SAHA treatment in a dose-dependent manner.
SAHA can be easily resuspended in DMSO. Make a stock solution with a concentration that will not exceed 0.01% of DMSO in the cell culture to avoid toxicity.

Epigenetics Scientific Review
Written by Susanne Müller-Knapp and Peter J. Brown, this review gives an overview of the development of chemical probes for epigenetic targets, as well as the impact of these tool compounds being made available to the scientific community. In addition, their biological effects are also discussed. Epigenetic compounds available from Tocris are listed.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Poster
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic destructive inflammatory autoimmune disease that results from a breakdown in immune tolerance, for reasons that are as yet unknown. This poster summarizes the pathology of RA and the inflammatory processes involved, as well as describing some of the epigenetic modifications associated with the disease and the potential for targeting these changes in the discovery of new treatments.
