SIRT1 is increasingly recognized as a critical regulator of stress responses, replicative senescence, inflammation, metabolism, and aging. SIRT1 expression is regulated transcriptionally and post-transcriptionally, and its enzymatic activity is controlled by NAD+ levels and interacting proteins. We found that SIRT1 protein levels were much higher in mouse(More)
The dsRNA binding proteins (DRBPs) comprise a growing family of eukaryotic, prokaryotic, and viral-encoded products that share a common evolutionarily conserved motif specifically facilitating interaction with dsRNA. Proteins harboring dsRNA binding domains (DRBDs) have been reported to interact with as little as 11 bp of dsRNA, an event that is independent(More)
The RNA helicases p68 and p72 are highly related members of the DEAD box family of proteins, sharing 90% identity across the conserved core, and have been shown to be involved in both transcription and mRNA processing. We previously showed that these proteins co-localise in the nucleus of interphase cells. In this study we show that p68 and p72 can interact(More)
Inhibitors of histone deacetylases (HDAC) show significant promise as targeted anticancer agents against a variety of hematologic and solid tumors. HDAC inhibitors arrest the growth of primary cells, but they induce apoptosis or differentiation of tumor cells. Although the precise mechanism is unknown, differences in cell cycle checkpoints and chromatin(More)
