The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) Tat protein is acetylated by the transcriptional coactivator p300, a necessary step in Tat-mediated transactivation. We report here that Tat is deacetylated by human sirtuin 1 (SIRT1), a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-dependent class III protein deacetylase in vitro and in vivo. Tat and SIRT1 coimmunoprecipitate and(More)
NAD (+)-dependent histone deacetylases (sirtuins) are enzymes that cleave acetyl groups from lysines in histones and other proteins. Potent selective sirtuin inhibitors are interesting tools for the investigation of the biological functions of those enzymes and may be future drugs for the treatment of cancer. Splitomicin was among the first two inhibitors(More)
Sir2 and Hst1 are NAD+-dependent deacetylases involved in transcriptional repression in yeast. The two enzymes are highly homologous yet have different sensitivity to the small-molecule inhibitor splitomicin (compound 1) (Bedalov, A., Gatbonton, T., Irvine, W. P., Gottschling, D. E., and Simon, J. A. (2001) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U. S. A. 98, 15113-15118).(More)
Subarachnoidalblutungen in der Schwangerschaft sind schicksalhaft. Frühsymptome oder Risikofaktoren gibt es nicht. Nach Diagnosestellung soll die Mutter rasch operiert werden. In der Spätschwangerschaft kann die Sektio in gleicher Narkose durchgeführt werden. Die Indikation für Computertomographie und Angiographie muß großzügig gestellt werden.
