    Abstract

    SIRT1, a NAD(+)-dependent protein deacetylase that regulates transcription factors involved in key cellular processes, has been implicated as a mediator of the beneficial effects of calorie restriction. In a recent issue of Nature, Milne et al. (2007) describe novel potent activators of SIRT1, whose administration to insulin-resistant animals improves glucose homeostasis.
