Solution: The effect of inhibiting the function of a histone deacetylase enzyme would likely lead to:A. a more compact and more transcriptionally active chromatinB. a less compact and less transcriptionally active chromatinC. a more compact and less transcriptionally active chromatinD. a less compact and more transcriptionally active chromatin

Problem

The effect of inhibiting the function of a histone deacetylase enzyme would likely lead to:

A. a more compact and more transcriptionally active chromatin

B. a less compact and less transcriptionally active chromatin

C. a more compact and less transcriptionally active chromatin

D. a less compact and more transcriptionally active chromatin

Solution

The histone deacetylase enzyme is an enzyme under the class of hydrolases (E.C. 3) that is responsible for the removal of the acetyl groups in histone proteins, affecting gene expression. aside from this, gene expression can also be controlled by DNA methylation.
