Scriptaid (CAS 287383-59-9) is a novel histone deacetylase inhibitor that belongs to an existing class of hydroxamic acid-containing HDAC inhibitors. Scriptaid has a general property of transcriptional facilitation that applies to stably integrated or transiently transfected exogenous constructs, to promoters derived from viruses or an endogenous gene, to multiple reporter genes, and to different cell lines. Scriptaid does not interfere with the ability of a reporter construct to measure the positive activation of a transcription factor in response to a known signal transduction stimulus. In relation to other members of its class, the optimal concentration of scriptaid (6-8 µM) is similar to those reported for CBHA (4 µM) and Suberoylanilide Hydroxamic Acid (2 µM), higher than Trichostatin A (1 µM), and much lower than those reported for EMBA (400 µM) and HMBA (5000 µM).
