A wide range of structures inhibit activity of class I/II HDAC enzymes, and with a few exceptions these can be divided into classes including (i) carboxylates (short chain fatty acids), (ii) small-molecule hydroxamates, (iii) electrophilic ketones (epoxides), (iv) cyclic peptides, (v) benzamides and (vi) other hybrid compounds.
Benzamides work well for people with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) and gastroparesis, but can lead to restlessness, sedation, and extrapyramidal effects.
HDAC inhibitors can be divided into four main classes: cyclic tetrapeptides (I), short-chain fatty acids (II), hydroxamic acids (III), and benzamides (IV).
