26808575 Under hypoxic conditions, SIRT2 inhibition increased the ubiquitination of HIF-1alpha in a VHL-dependent manner, leading to the degradation of HIF-1alpha via a proteasomal pathway.
26625292 microseed matrix seeding (MMS) was used to obtain crystals of human Sirt3 in its apo form and of human Sirt2 in complex with ADP ribose (ADPR).
26538315 Emerging Role of Sirtuin 2 in the Regulation of Mammalian Metabolism
26303530 The study reports the formation of a multiprotein complex at the G2-to-M transition in vitro and in vivo. Group IVA cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2-alpha) acts as a bridge in this complex to promote binding of SIRT2 to cyclin A-Cdk2.
26001219 Use of a pan-sirtuin inhibitor and shRNA-mediated protein knockdown led us to uncover a role for the NAD(+)-dependent family of sirtuins, and in particular for SIRT2 and SIRT5, in the regulation of the necroptotic cell death program
25960087 Regulation of protein acetylation by SIRT2 plays a central role in platelet function. The effects of SIRT2 are mediated in part by the acetylation and inhibition of Akt.
25934993 Two polymorphisms,SIRT2-rs45592833 G/T and DRD2-rs6276 A/G, provided a significant association with human longevity.
25924011 In conclusion our data reveal that resveratrol induced premature senescence is associated with SIRT1 and SIRT2 down regulation in human dermal fibroblasts
25915617 Expression of sirtuin 1 and 2 is associated with poor prognosis in non-small cell lung cancer patients
25829495 Sirt1, Sirt2, and Sirt3 are expressed in enucleate platelets. Sirtuins act as a central player in the determination of platelet aging.
