Brief description Genes up-regulated in DO11.10 cells (hybridoma) by expression of transciptionally activating form of HDAC7 [GeneID=51564] and down-regulated by its transcriptionally repressing form.
Full description or abstract Histone deacetylase 7 (HDAC7) is highly expressed in CD4(+)/CD8(+) thymocytes and functions as a signal-dependent repressor of gene transcription during T-cell development. In this study, we expressed HDAC7 mutant proteins in a T-cell line and use DNA microarrays to identify transcriptional targets of HDAC7 in T cells. The changes in gene expression levels were compared to differential gene expression profiles associated with positive and negative thymic selection. This analysis reveals that HDAC7 regulates an extensive set of genes that are differentially expressed during both positive and negative thymic selection. Many of these genes play important functional roles in thymic selection, primarily via modulating the coupling between antigen receptor engagement and downstream signaling events. Consistent with the model that HDAC7 may play an important role in both positive and negative thymic selection, the expression of distinct HDAC7 mutants or the abrogation of HDAC7 expression can either enhance or inhibit the signal-dependent differentiation of a CD4(+)/CD8(+) cell line.
