Biochem/physiol Actions

Sirtuin 5 (SIRT5) catalyzes the degradation of negatively charged acylated substrates. It also possesses desuccinylase, demalonylase and deglutarylase activities. SIRT5 is a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+)-dependent deacetylase and is overexpressed in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and may have a role in cancer growth. Members of sirtun family play a vital role in epigenetic gene silencing, DNA repair and recombination, cell-cycle, microtubule organization, and in the regulation of aging. SIRT5 has been involved in regulation of the carbamoyl phosphase synthase 1 activity, an essential enzyme of urea cycle, via maintaining lysine glutarylation levels. Sirtuin 5 as a mitochondrial protein plays a major role in controlling ATP production, apoptosis, and cell signaling.

General description

The sirtuin 5 (SIRT5) gene with eight exons is mapped to human chromosome 6p23. The gene exists in two isoforms codings for 310 amino acid and 299 amino acid protein, respectively. Sirtuin 5 is mainly present in heart muscle cells and in lymphoblasts. It is a member of the silent information regulator 2 (Sir2) family of sirtuin histone deacetylases (HDACs). Sirtuin 5 is a mitochondrial protein.
