Histone Deacetylase Inhibition Activity and Molecular Docking of (E )-Resveratrol: Its Therapeutic Potential in Spinal Muscular Atrophy Authors:Dayangac-Erden, Didem; Bora, Gamze; Ayhan, Peruze; Kocaefe, Çetin; Dalkara, Sevim; Yelekçi, Kemal; Demir, Ayhan S.; Erdem-Yurter, Hayat
Publisher and Date:(Wiley, 2009)Spinal muscular atrophy is an autosomal recessive motor neuron disease that is caused by mutation of the survival motor neuron gene (SMN1) but all patients retain a nearly identical copy SMN2. The disease severity correlates inversely with increased SMN2 copy. Currently the most promising therapeutic strategy for spinal muscular atrophy is induction of SMN2 gene expression by histone deacetylase inhibitors. Polyphenols are known for protection against oxidative stress and degenerative diseases. ...
Molecular modifications on carboxylic acid derivatives as potent histone deacetylase inhibitors: Activity and docking studies Authors:Bora-Tatar, Gamze; Dayangac-Erden, Didem; Demir, Ayhan S.; Dalkara, Sevim; Yelekçi, Kemal; Erdem-Yurter, Hayat
Publisher and Date:(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2009)In the light of known HDAC inhibitors 33 carboxylic acid derivatives were tested to understand the structural requirements for HDAC inhibition activity. Several modifications were applied to develop the structure-activity relationships of carboxylic acid HDAC inhibitors. HDAC inhibition activities were investigated in vitro by using HeLa nuclear extract in a fluorimetric assay. Molecular docking was also carried out for the human HDAC8 enzyme in order to predict inhibition activity and the 3D poses ...
