Carboxylic acid derivatives display potential selectivity for human histone deacetylase 6: Structure-based virtual screening molecular docking and dynamics simulation studies Authors:
Publisher and Date:(Elsevier Science, 2018)Human histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6) has been shown to play a major role in oncogenic cell transformation via deacetylation of alpha-tubulin making it a viable target of anticancer drug design and development. The crystal structure of HDAC6 catalytic domain 2 has been recently made available providing avenues for structure-based drug design campaign. Here in our continuous effort to identify potentially selective HDAC6 inhibitors structure-based virtual screening of similar to 72 461 compounds was ...
Molecular modifications on carboxylic acid derivatives as potent histone deacetylase inhibitors: Activity and docking studies Authors:
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 ...
