Gene: Hdac8 (histone deacetylase 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Hdac8
Name: histone deacetylase 8
CRRD ID: 1562895
Description: Exhibits chromatin binding activity; deacetylase activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to organic cyclic compound; negative regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; and negative regulation of osteoblast differentiation. Localizes to nucleus. Biomarker of amphetamine abuse; hypertension; and renovascular hypertension. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Cornelia de Lange syndrome 5 and Wilson-Turner syndrome. Orthologous to human HDAC8 (histone deacetylase 8); PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl; 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 2,6-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
