Post-translational modification of proteins is an efficient way cells use to control the activity of structural proteins, gene expression regulatory proteins, and enzymes. In eukaryotes, the Sir2-dependent system of protein acetylation/deacetylation controls a number of processes that affect cell longevity. Sir2 proteins have NAD(+)-dependent protein deacetylase activity and are found in all forms of life. Although the identity of the acetyltransferases that partner with Sir2 enzymes is known… CONTINUE READING
