HDAC7 or Histone deacetylase 7 belongs to the histone deacetylase/acuc/apha family and is a component of the histone deacetylase complex. The protein encoded by HDAC7 gene has sequence homology to members of the histone deacetylase family whose protein promotes repression mediated via the transcriptional co-repressor SMRT (1). HDAC7 interacts with β-catenin keeping endothelial cells in a low proliferation stage. HDAC7 regulates NUR77 and apoptosis in developing thymocytes (2). HDAC7 is expressed in human osteoarthritis that contributes to cartilage degradation via promoting MMP-13 gene expression.
