Histones interact with DNA and fold it in typical structures which lead to the formation of chromatin. These histones undergo post-translational modifications caused by HATs and HDACs which can loosen or thighten the histone-DNA interaction. These enzymes are thereby involved in gene transcription by restricting or providing access for transcriptional proteins. HATs and HDACs are can also cause PTMs on non-histone targets. Increasing evidence suggests anti-inflammatory potential for HDAC inhibitors via the NF-κB pathway. In this report, based on recent publications, describes the role of class 1 HDACs in inflammation and the possibility of the use of HAD inhibitors for anti-inflammatory treatment.
