Increasing evidence suggests that AR (androgen receptor) acetylation is critical for prostate cancer cell growth. In the present study, we identified Pro-B3 (procyanidin B3) as a specific HAT (histone acetyltransferase) inhibitor. Pro-B3 selectively inhibited the activity of HATs, but not other epigenetic enzymes. Pro-B3 substantially inhibited the p300-mediated AR acetylation, both in vitro and in vivo. Pro-B3 inhibited both p300-dependent and agonist-induced AR transcription. We demonstrate that the p300-mediated AR acetylation is critical for the hormone responsiveness of AR. Interestingly, B3 treatment efficiently enhanced the antagonist activity of flutamide through suppression of p300 HAT activity, demonstrating that relative p300 activity is critical for the antagonist action. Finally, Pro-B3 treatment inhibited acetylation-dependent prostate cell proliferation and expression of cell-cycle control genes, subsequently increasing cell death, indicating the functional importance of AR acetylation for prostate cancer cell growth.
