Abstract: The paper proposed a possible binding mode of MS-275, a benzamide histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor, to HDAC by intensive docking study. This binding mode is different from those observed in the crystal structure of complexes formed by a histone deacetylase-like protein (HDLP) with trichostatin A (TSA) or suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA). The docking result implicates that the main target of MS-275 is the narrowest part of HDAC active pocket. It seems to be able to explain the low toxicity of MS-275 and provides new insights on the design of novel HDAC inhibitors.

Key words: Histone deacetylase(HDAC), Histone deacetylase like protein(HDLP),  Trichostatin A(TSA), Docking, MS-275
