Abstract

Compelling new support has been provided for histone deacetylase isoform 6 (HDAC6) as a common thread in the generation of the dysregulated proinflammatory and fibrotic phenotype in cystic fibrosis (CF). HDAC6 also plays a crucial role in bacterial clearance or killing as a direct consequence of its effects on CF immune responses. Inhibiting HDAC6 functions thus eventually represents an innovative and effective strategy to tackle multiple aspects of CF-associated lung disease. In this Perspective, we not only showcase the latest evidence linking HDAC(6) activity and expression with CF phenotype but also track the new dawn of HDAC(6) modulators in CF and explore potentialities and future perspectives in the field.
