Regulated shuttling of the histone deacetylase HDAC5 to the nucleus may put a brake on cocaine addiction.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The histone deacetylase HDAC5 has been shown to regulate behavioral adaptations to cocaine. In this issue of Neuron, Taniguchi et al. (2012) describe a cAMP-dependent signaling pathway that regulates nuclear accumulation of HDAC5, suggesting a mechanism to couple cocaine with changes in HDAC5 function.
