Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to the crucial role of histone deacetylases (HDACs) in regulating fundamental cellular processes, this thematic issue aims to highlight important advances in the field of HDACs, including their inhibitors and activators and their pharmacological applications in cancer, neurodegenerative and inflammatory diseases.

The sub-topics to be covered within the issue will be:

  • HDAC inhibitors as anti-inflammatory agents with a novel mechanism of action;
  • HDAC inhibitors targeting the tumor microenvironment: new perspectives;
  • HDAC inhibitor applications in neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders;
  • HDAC inhibitors as novel antidiabetic agents;
  • HDAC activators and inflammation.

Prof. Dr. Anna Artese
Guest Editor
