Objective: To assess whether histone deacetylase 4 (HDAC4) is related to the abnormal expression of α-synuclein (α-syn) via the autophagy pathway.
Background: The overexpression and aggregation of α-syn play central roles in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Therefore, the clearance of α-syn is a feasible and promising therapeutics alternative for PD. Previous studies indicated that aberrant histone acetylation could inhibit the autophagy process, which influence the abnormal overexpression and aggregation of α-syn.
Methods: The shRNA of HDAC4 and vehicle were transfected into SH-SY5Y cells respectively, then the cells were treated with 1μmol rotenone for 48 hours. The protein levels of HDAC4, α-syn, LC3-Ⅱ, p62 and beclin-1 were evaluated by Western blot.
Results: After exposure in rotenone, the SH-SY5Y cells showed an abnormal increase in the expression of α-syn. However, after knock-down of HDAC4, the abnormal expression of α-syn was reversed. Moreover, the protein levels of LC3-Ⅱ and belcin-1 were increased, while the level of p62 was decreased.
Conclusions: Reduced expression of HDAC4 reverses the abnormal expression of α-syn via activation of autophagy. HDAC4 is related to rotenone-induced elevated level of α-syn.
