General description

Anti-SIRT1 recognizes human SIRT1. Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 10q21.3. The encoded protein belongs to the silent information regulator (SIR) family and is a class of HDAC (histone deacetylase). SIRT1 is expressed in various tissues including brain, liver, pancreas, adipose tissue, and skeletal muscle. SIRT1 is also known as the longevity gene.

Immunogen

synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 580-593 of human SIRT1, conjugated to KLH via an N-terminal cysteine residue. The corresponding sequence differs by three amino acids in rat and mouse Sirt1.

Application

Anti-SIRT1 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in immunohistochemistry.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) functions as a regulator of various metabolic pathways, and influences the pathophysiology of several metabolic diseases. It is a regulator of protein deacetylation, and is a candidate therapeutic target in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), kidney disease, and pulmonary disease. It also participates in tumorigenesis, and whether it functions as an oncogene or as a tumor suppressor depends upon the tumor type. In pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), its elevated expression is linked with poor prognosis, and in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), it suppresses the expression of tumor suppressor p27. The encoded protein inhibits the terminal differentiation in dividing myocytes by binding to the myoD cofactor, pCAF. It is also thought to function as a suppressor of cardiovascular disorders, such as myocardial infarction, or neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer′s disease (AD) or Parkinson′s disorder (PD).

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 2-8°C for up to one month. For extended storage, freeze in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in “frostfree” freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use. Working dilutions should be discarded if not used within 12 hours.

Other Notes

In order to obtain the best results using various techniques and preparations, we recommend determining the optimal working dilutions by titration.
