Abstract: Background:This study investigates whether a histone deacetylase subtype 6 (HDAC6) inhibitor could be used in the treatment of solid tumours.Methods:We evaluated the effect of a novel inhibitor, C1A, on HDAC6 biochemical activity and cell growth. We further examined potential of early noninvasive imaging of cell proliferation by [18F]fluorothymidine positron emission tomography ([18F]FLT-PET) to detect therapy response.Results:C1A induced sustained acetylation of HDAC6 substrates, α-tubulin and HSP90, compared…
