Role of the Sin3-histone deacetylase complex in growth regulation by the candidate tumor suppressor p33(ING1).

Sin3 is an evolutionarily conserved corepressor that exists in different complexes with the histone deacetylases HDAC1 and HDAC2. Sin3- HDAC complexes are believed to deacetylate nucleosomes in the vicinity of Sin3-regulated promoters, resulting in a repressed chromatin structure. We have previously found that a human Sin3- HDAC complex includes HDAC1 and HDAC2, the histone-binding proteins RbAp46 and RbAp48, and two novel polypeptides SAP30 and SAP18. SAP30 is a specific component of Sin3 complexes since it is absent in other HDAC1/2-containing complexes such as NuRD. SAP30 mediates interactions with different polypeptides providing specificity to Sin3 complexes. We have identified p33ING1b, a negative growth regulator involved in the p53 pathway, as a SAP30-associated protein. Two distinct Sin3-p33ING1b-containing complexes were isolated, one of which associates with the subunits of the Brg1-based Swi/Snf chromatin remodeling complex. The N terminus of p33ING1b, which is divergent among a family of ING1 polypeptides, associates with the Sin3 complex through direct interaction with SAP30. The N-terminal domain of p33 is present in several uncharacterized human proteins. We show that overexpression of p33ING1b suppresses cell growth in a manner dependent on the intact Sin3- HDAC-interacting domain.[1]
