Histone Acetylation is not Affected by Chloroacetamides in vitro

  • Friedhelm Kring and Peter Böger


The effects of chloroacetamides on the acetylation of histone protein in maize (Zea mays) were studied in an in vitro assay. Neither alachlor nor metazachlor showed any influence on both of the investigated acetylating enzymes, the nuclear histone acetyltransferase A and the cytoplasmic histone acetyltransferase B. Furthermore, an effect of these herbicides on deacetylation of histones could be excluded.
