Tag: SIRT6

Research mouse
A study published in Aging has shown that the sirtuin SIRT6 has positive effects on multiple hallmarks of aging in the hearts of mice. Sirtuins Sirtuins are a family of proteins that have been shown to have significant effects on longevity in multiple model organisms. In a previous study, the sirtuin SIRT2 was shown to...

At Ending Age-Related Diseases 2020, Dr. Eric Leire of Genflow Biosciences discussed his company, explaining what Genflow does and how it is funded. The company is intervening directly in the biology of aging, affecting SIRT6, which, like other sirtuins, is a known regulator of aging. The company intends to develop its SIRT6 plasmid as an...
The July Journal Club hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik looked at the recent SIRT6 evolutionary biology paper by Dr. Vera Gorbunova and collaborators, showing a relationship between enhanced SIRT6 function and longevity. The study took a deep dive into SIRT6 in multiple species and how it appears to support longevity to a lesser or greater...
The Journal Club hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik returns for July and takes a look at the new SIRT6 evolutionary biology paper by Dr. Vera Gorbunova and collaborators, showing a relationship between enhanced SIRT6 function and longevity. Join us at 13:00 EDT on our Facebook channel where we will be livestreaming the show and discussing...
Sirtuins have long been implicated in playing a role in the longevity of various species, including our own, and researchers at the University of Rochester have now discovered more supporting evidence that they do. What are sirtuins? Sirtuins are a family of proteins that facilitate cellular function and have long been known to play a...
