Key Event Relationship Description
HDAC inhibition leads to cell cycle arrest including G1/S phase arrest [Falkenberg and Johnstone, 2014]. The HDAC inhibition-induced cell cycle arrest is mediated by transcriptional changes of the CDK inhibitors such as p21 [Falkenberg and Johnstone, 2014].
Evidence Supporting this KER
The knockdown of HDACs may induce antitumor effects such as cell cycle arrest and inhibition of proliferation [Falkenberg and Johnstone, 2014]. In leukemia, an oncogenic fusion protein recruits a variety of proteins including HDACs to repress cell cycle inhibitors, which suggests that HDAC inhibition leads to cell cycle dysregulation [Falkenberg and Johnstone, 2014].
Uncertainties and Inconsistencies
The involvement of p53/p63/p73 in up-regulation of p21 induced by HDAC inhibition is not fully elucidated, where time course of the p21 and p53/p63/p73 mRNA expression has demonstrated the cell-line specific differences in the responses in 4 human prostate cancer cell lines LNCaP, C4-2B, PC-3 and DU-145 [Parajuli et al., 2014].
MAA (5 mM) induced p21 up-regulation in 12 to 72 hrs in LNCaP, C4-2B, PC-3, and DU-145 human prostate cancer cell lines [Parajuli et al., 2014].

Domain of Applicability
MAA induced G1 cell cycle arrest in human prostate cancer cells (Homo sapiens) [Parajuli et al., 2014].
Apicidin induced G1 cell cycle arrest in HeLa cells (Homo sapiens) [Han et al., 2000].
The change in the amounts of cells in the G1 phase and S phase of the cell cycle was detected in mouse HDAC1 knock-out fibroblast lines (Mus musculus) [Zupkovitz et al., 2010].
Loss of HDAC1 in mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells results in the acetylation of histones H3 and H4, up-regulation of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors p21WAF1/CIP1 and p27KIP1, and inhibition of proliferation (Mus musculus) [Lagger et al., 2002].
