histone deacetylase activity definition: Catalysis of the hydrolysis of acetyl groups from histones, proteins complexed to DNA in chromatin and chromosomes. [EC:3.5.1.-, http://cancerweb.ncl.ac.uk/]
NAD-dependent histone deacetylase activity definition: Catalysis of the removal of one or more acetyl groups from a histone, requiring NAD. [GOC:ai, GOC:mah]
NAD-independent histone deacetylase activity definition: Catalysis of the removal of one or more acetyl groups from a histone, independently of NAD. [GOC:ai, GOC:mah]
chitin deacetylase activity definition: Catalysis of the reaction: chitin + H2O = chitosan + acetate. [EC:3.5.1.41]
deacetylase activity definition: Catalysis of the hydrolysis of an acetyl group or groups from a substrate molecule. [GOC:jl]
acetylornithine deacetylase activity definition: Catalysis of the reaction: N2-acetyl-L-ornithine + H2O = acetate + L-ornithine. [EC:3.5.1.16]
N-acetylglucosamine-6-phosphate deacetylase activity definition: Catalysis of the reaction: N-acetyl-D-glucosamine 6-phosphate + H2O = D-glucosamine 6-phosphate + acetate. [EC:3.5.1.25]
UDP-3-O-[3-hydroxymyristoyl] N-acetylglucosamine deacetylase activity definition: Catalysis of the removal of an acetyl moiety from the 2-N position of glucosamine in the lipid A precursor UDP-3-O-(R-3-hydroxymyristoyl)-N-acetylglucosamine. [PMID:10026271]
N-acetylglucosaminylphosphatidylinositol deacetylase activity definition: Catalysis of the reaction: N-acetyl-D-glucosaminylphosphatidylinositol + H2O = D-glucosaminylphosphatidylinositol + acetate. The second step enzyme catalyzing the biosynthesis of glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI), used to anchor various eukaryotic proteins to the cell-surface membrane. Catalyzes the N-deacetylation of GlcNAc-PI to GlcN-PI. [EC:3.5.1.89]
histone deacetylase inhibitor activity definition: Stops, prevents or reduces the activity of histone deacetylase, which catalyzes of the removal of acetyl groups from histones, proteins complexed to DNA in chromatin and chromosomes. [GOC:ai, PMID:10482575]
