About this Research Topic
Silent information regulator 1 (SIRT), also known as NAD-dependent deacetylase sirtuin, is a member of the class III group of histone deacetylases, collectively called sirtuins. The mammalian sirtuin family consists of 7 members, designated SIRT1 through SIRT7, which are characterized by a conserved 275-amino-acid catalytic core and unique additional N-terminal and C-terminal sequences of variable length. Previous studies have shown that SIRT can deacetylate many transcription factors, including forkhead box O (FOXO) transcription factors, p53, nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), liver X receptor (LXR), and nuclear co-activators, as well, including peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γcoactivator-1α(PGC-1α), cAMP-responsive element-binding protein–regulated transcription co-activator 2, and period homolog 2. It has been reported that SIRT family perform a wide variety of functions in a variety of biological systems, including obesity-associated metabolic diseases, endocrine disease, cancer, aging, cellular senescence, and oxidative stress, prion-mediated neurodegeneration, inflammation, and placental cell survival. Moreover, recent studies have demonstrated that SIRT play a pivotal roles in bone metabolism, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and neurological diseases.
