Research Summary

Human genome wide association analysis (GWAS) showed that histone deacetylase 9 (HDAC9) was closely related to stroke. Our previous study also found that HDAC9 expression on neurons increased after cerebral ischemia in mice, and specific knockout of HDAC9 (CKO) on excitatory neurons in mice could protect neuron apoptosis induced by cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I / P), while reversal of HDAC9 in CKO mice by adeno-associated virus infection could protect brain injury induced by I / P. Further study showed that PKG II expression in cerebral cortex of CKO mice increased after cerebral ischemia, while PKG II decreased significantly after adeno-associated virus refilling HDAC9, suggesting that HDAC9 may play a role through PKG II, but the specific mechanism is unknown. We analyzed that mef-2 may be a transcription factor binding to PKG II transcription initiation region through database, while HDAC9 can bind to mef-2 and inhibit downstream gene expression. Therefore, we propose the hypothesis that after cerebral ischemia reperfusion, the expression of HDAC9 in excitatory neurons increases, which can inhibit the expression of PKG II through mef-2, leading to neuron apoptosis.
