||Recombinant Human SIRT2 (amino acids 13-319) was expressed in anE.coliexpression system with Cterminal His tag. MW=35.5 kDa.
||NAD-dependent deacetylase sirtuin-2 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the SIRT2 gene. This gene encodes a member of the sirtuin family of proteins, homologs to the yeast Sir2 protein. Members of the sirtuin family are characterized by a sirtuin core domain and grouped into four classes. The functions of human sirtuins have not yet been determined; however, yeast sirtuin proteins are known to regulate epigenetic gene silencing and suppress recombination of rDNA. Studies suggest that the human sirtuins may function as intracellular regulatory proteins with mono-ADP-ribosyltransferase activity. The protein encoded by this gene is included in class I of the sirtuin family. Two transcript variants result from alternative splicing of this gene.
