Brain development: Researchers identify key protein

A group of proteins has been on the watch list of scientists because of their important function in epigenetics: histone deacetylases coordinate the transcription of genetic information and play an important role in the development of diseases such as cancer and neurodegenerative disorders. Researchers recently demonstrated that deactivating HDAC1 accelerates skin tumor development ? a vital finding that has to be taken into account when developing new drugs to treat skin tumors.
