26775843 Thus, these results suggest that SIRT4 has essential roles in stress resistance and may be an important therapeutic target for cancer treatment.
26086877 SIRT4 has a tumour-suppressive function and may serve as a novel therapeutic target in colorectal cancer.
26054687 SIRT4 behaves as a tumor suppressor at the human tissue protein level.
25633289 C-terminal-binding protein (CtBP) was found to have an essential role in promoting glutaminolysis by directly repressing the expression of SIRT4.
25525879 Until now, a mammalian cellular lipoamidase has not been characterized; this study discovered that SIRT4 can function with this enzymatic capacity in the mitochondria, and that PDH is a biological substrate; compared to its catalytic efficiency for deacetylation, SIRT4 exhibits far superior enzymatic activity for lipoyl- and biotinyl-lysine modifications.
25466907 Serum Sirt4 was inversely related to anthropometric and metabolic parameters and positively related to peak GH and IGF-1.
25361925 This study demonstrated that SIRT4 upregulation in the liver of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease patients.
25331589 Overexpression of SIRT4 attenuated inflammation mediators in umbilical vein endothelial cells.
25165814 Results show that mitochondrial sirtuins SIRT3, SIRT4, and SIRT5 can promote increased mitochondrial respiration and cellular metabolism and respond to excess glucose by inducing a coordinated increase of glycolysis and respiration.
25045415 The present study shows low circulating levels of SIRT4 in obese patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
24368766 these results highlight the tumor-suppressive role of SIRT4 in Myc-induced B cell lymphoma and suggest that SIRT4 may be a potential target against Myc-induced and/or glutamine-dependent cancers.
24296486 regulates ATP levels via ANT2 and a feedback loop involving AMPK
23663782 Study shows that mTORC1 promotes glutamine anaplerosis by activating glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH). This regulation requires transcriptional repression of SIRT4, the mitochondrial-localized sirtuin that inhibits GDH. Mechanistically, mTORC1 represses SIRT4 by promoting the proteasome-mediated destabilization of cAMP-responsive element binding 2.
23044393 Sirt-4 modulates sensitivity to mitochondrial permeability transition pore (PTP) onset induced by calcium and the oxidative cross linking reagent phenylarsine oxide, and PTP dependent cytotoxicity brought about by TNF or doxorubicin.
21556116 there is a negative correlation between SIRTs 1 and 4 and fasting plasma glucose, a positive correlation between SIRT4 mRNA levels and triglyceride/lipoprotein a levels, and a negative correlation between SIRT4 mRNA levels and HDL
19209188 Meta-analysis of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
