HDAC9 or MITR belongs to the histone deacetylase /acuc/apha family and is a component of the histone deacetylase complex. HDAC9 gene is orthologous to the Xenopus and mouse MITR genes (MEF2-interacting transcription repressor). HDAC9 represses MEF2 activity through recruitment of multicomponent corepressor complexes that include CtBP and HDACs. HDAC9 is a calcium-sensitive transcriptional repressor of MEF2 (1). Binding of calmodulin to HDAC9 leads to its dissociation from MEF2, relieving MEF2 from the transcriptional repression. HDAC9 is a signal-responsive transcriptional repressor in mouse skeletal muscle that is downregulated upon denervation (2).
