Histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC 6) is known to play a critical role in histone modification and transcription regulation of a wide variety of genes involved in cell cycle regulation and cell proliferation, migration, and development. Recently, Winkler et al. (1) analyzed the role of HDAC6 in regulation of metabolism-mediating transcription of gluconeogenic genes G6P, FBP, PEPCK, and PCX …
