Background:
Sirtuins are NAD+ dependent class III histone deacetylases that regulate important biological processes including metabolism and aging. In human, there are seven isoforms of Sirtuins, SIRT1 to SIRT7. Four of the isoforms, SIRT4 to SIRT7, have no detectable or very weak deacetylase activity. Sirtuin 6 (SIRT6) is shown to be a potent defatty-acylase of lysine residues.
Description:
The Sirtuin 6 Fluorogenic Assay Kit is a complete assay system designed to measure SIRT6 activity for screening and profiling applications. It comes in a convenient 96-well format, with all the reagents necessary for 100 fluorescent SIRT6 activity measurements. In addition, the kit includes purified SIRT6 enzyme and a SIRT inhibitor, Nicotinamide, for use as a positive and negative control, respectively. The Fluorogenic SIRT6 Assay Kit is based on a unique fluorogenic substrate and developer combination. This assay method eliminates dealing with the radioactivity, extraction, and chromatography aspects of traditional assays. Using this kit, only two simple steps on a microtiter plate are needed to analyze the SIRT6 activity level. First, the Sirtuin 6 fluorometric substrate, containing a myristoylated lysine side chain, is incubated with purified SIRT6 enzyme. The demyristoylation sensitizes the substrate so subsequent treatment with the SIRT Developer produces a fluorophore that can then be measured using a fluorescence reader.
