Abstract

To find novel histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6)-selective inhibitors and clarify the structural requirements for HDAC6-selective inhibition, we prepared thiolate analogues designed based on the structure of an HDAC6-selective substrate and evaluated the histone/alpha-tubulin acetylation selectivity by Western blot analysis. Aliphatic compounds 17b-20b selectively caused alpha-tubulin acetylation over histone H4 acetylation. In enzyme assays using HDAC1, HDAC4, and HDAC6, compounds 17a-19a exhibited HDAC6-selective inhibition over HDAC1 and HDAC4.
