The expression of histone deacetylase 1, but not other class I histone deacetylases, is significantly increased in Endometriosis


Samartzis, Eleftherios P; Noske, Aurelia; Samartzis, Nicolas; Fink, Daniel; Imesch, Patrick (2013). The expression of histone deacetylase 1, but not other class I histone deacetylases, is significantly increased in Endometriosis. Reproductive Sciences, 20(12):1416-1422.

Abstract

Class I histone deacetylases (HDACs-1-3) play an important role in steroid hormone-dependent gene expression and in modulating cell survival and proliferation. We analyzed their expression in a tissue microarray including 74 endometriosis samples and 30 normal endometrium controls. The mean HDAC-1 immunoreactivity score (IRS ± standard deviation) was 7.6 ± 2.5 in endometriosis and 5.3 ± 2.3 in normal endometrium (P < .001). In contrast, the IRSs of HDAC-2 and -3 were 11.7 ± 0.7 and 11.8 ± 1.1 in endometriosis and 11.6 ± 1.0 and 11.9 ± 0.4 in normal endometrium (P = .7 and P = .2), respectively. Significant correlations were found between HDAC-1 and estrogen (-alpha/-beta) and progesterone receptor expression. In conclusion, HDAC-1, but not HDAC-2/-3, was significantly increased in endometriosis and associated with steroid hormone receptor expression that may reflect interdependence. In context with the literature, specific inhibitors of HDAC-1 may have inhibitory activities similar to those of broad-spectrum HDAC inhibitors and may be clinically tolerated, which would increase their chance as an option in the treatment of endometriosis.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
