Eukaryotes initiate autophagy to cope with the lack of external nutrients, which requires the activation of the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD(+))-dependent deacetylase Sirtuin 1 (Sirt1). However, the mechanisms underlying the starvation-induced Sirt1 activation for autophagy initiation remain unclear. Here, we demonstrate that glyceraldehyde(More)
The class III phosphoinositide 3-kinase VPS34 plays a key role in the regulation of vesicular trafficking and macroautophagy. So far, we know little about the molecular mechanism of VPS34 activation besides its interaction with regulatory proteins to form complexes. Here, we report that VPS34 is specifically acetylated by the acetyltransferase p300, and(More)
OBJECTIVE The effect of the gene polymorphism for the key enzyme's folacin metabolism pathway on plasmatic homocysteine (Hcy) levels in fertile woman was observed. METHODS The subjects were from Shaoxing City, Jiangsu province in 2012, the selection criteria for the women of childbearing age were between 20-45 years old, with an average age of 28.2(More)
