Targeting histone deacetylase (HDAC-1 and HDAC-2) as mechanisms to induce fetal hemoglobin in sickle cell disease


Sickle cell disease (SCD) is one of the most prevalent chronic hereditary hemoglobinopathies worldwide. Currently, the only drug available for its treatment is hydroxyurea, responsible among other actions, to increase the levels of fetal hemoglobin (HbF). Gamma-globin gene regulation is complex and involves various proteins and enzymes, such as histone deacetylase (HDAC). HADC inhibitors, like the butyrate has shown effect to induce HbF levels both in vitro and in vivo. Class I HDAC inhibition, specifically HDAC-1 and HDAC-2, proved to be a promising strategy to promote increased gene expression of gamma-globin and production of HbF without causing changes in the cell cycle and proliferation.In this proposal, in continuity with our research aiming to identify new drugs to treat SCD symptoms, we describe herein the synthesis and pharmacological evaluation of new compounds designed as HDAC-1 and HDAC-2 inhibitors obtained by molecular hybridization approach.
