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)
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)
