|Description: Histone deacetylase 3 (HD3) (RPD3-2) (SMAP45).|
Ensembl ID: ENSG00000171720
UniprotKB/SwissProt: HDAC3_HUMAN (O15379)
Function: Responsible for the deacetylation of lysine residues on the N-terminal part of the core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4). Histone deacetylation gives a tag for epigenetic repression and plays an important role in transcriptional regulation, cell cycle progression and developmental events. Histone deacetylases act via the formation of large multiprotein complexes. Probably participates in the regulation of transcription through its binding to the zinc-finger transcription factor YY1; increases YY1 repression activity. Required to repress transcription of the POU1F1 transcription factor.
