Angiogenesis is crucially involved in many physiological and pathological processes including tumor growth, but the molecular mechanisms regulating angiogenesis are incompletely understood. In this study, we investigated the functions and mechanism of histone deacetylase 10 (HDAC10), a member of the HDAC II family, in regulation of angiogenesis. HDAC10 overexpression in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) promoted tube formation, whereas depletion of HDAC10 from HUVECs inhibited tube formation in vitro and in vivo. Mechanistically, HDAC10 overexpression increased extracellular-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) activation, whereas depletion of HDAC10 inhibited ERK1/2 activation. Finally, HDAC10 promoted ERK1/2 phosphorylation by deacetylating the promoter of protein tyrosine phosphatase, non-receptor type 22 (PTPN22) and inhibiting the expression of PTPN22, which is a negative regulator of ERK phosphorylation. Collectively, our results identify HDAC10 as a key regulator of angiogenesis and reveal that HDAC10 functions in this process by binding and deacetylating the PTPN22 promoter and subsequently inhibiting PTPN22 expression, which in turn increases ERK1/2 phosphorylation. Our studies suggest that HDAC10 is a potential target for therapeutic intervention to inhibit angiogenesis and tumor growth.
