Sirtuins Meet Renal Medicine

November 18, 2016 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: W183B

Session Description

Sirtuins are NAD+-dependent protein deacetylases, which are evolutionarily conserved from bacteria to humans. A number of cytoplasmic and mitochondrial targets of sirtuins has been identified, and accumulating evidence indicates their role in a wide spectrum of kidney diseases. This session addresses these topics.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. recognize the importance of sirtuins in health and disease; 2. describe the functional role of sirtuins in the diseased kidney and heart; and 3. identify sirtuins as a possible therapeutic target for kidney diseases.
