Description

Human SIRT1, an NAD+-dependent deacetylase, plays a role in cell death/ survival, senescence, and endocrine signalling [PMID: 17964266]. Its substrates are well characterised, but evidence for the identity of its direct regulators has been wanting. Recently, the nuclear protein AROS (also termed 40S ribosomal protein S19-binding protein 1 [PMID: 16289379]) has been implicated in the direct regulation of SIRT1 function - this protein has been dubbed 'active regulator of SIRT1. The protein has been shown to enhance SIRT1-mediated deacetylation of p53, in vitro and in vivo, and to inhibit p53-mediated transcriptional activity. It is the first direct SIRT1 regulator to have been identified that modulates p53-mediated growth regulation.
