HDACi showed mild anti-apoptosis effect on HLECs after UVB exposure. a: βOHB, b: SAHA, c: TSA, d: VPA. The proportion of apoptotic cells increased after UVB exposure. However, only SAHA (1 μmol/L) was able to decrease apoptosis rates in UVB-treated HLECs. Higher concentrations of HDACis resulted in increased levels of cell apoptosis. * P < 0.05
