V-91 is an azole-based compound which acts as a photoreactive histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor suitable for photoaffinity labeling experiments. This allows for the identification of drug target proteins of biologically active compounds and mapping their binding sites.
Selectivity of V-91 for the active site of HDAC8 was demonstrated by blocking it with SAHA.
