Abstract : In this funding period, we continued to test the hypothesis that silencing of key tumor suppressive genes by enhanced crosstalk between LSD1 and HDAC5 is a unique epigenetic mechanism promoting TNBC growth, and blockade of the HDAC5-LSD1 axis results in profound inhibition of TNBC growth and metastasis. By using In vitro pull-down assays with His-tag recombinant LSD1 protein incubating withHDAC5 full-length or deletion mutants and immunofluorescence assays, we identified that HDAC5 domain containing nuclear localization element is essential for interaction with LSD1.
