Physiological Functions
Sirt1 induces inflammatory signaling in response to environmental stress.
Species:  Mouse
Tissue:  Macrophages in liver and adipose tissue.
References:  7
Sirt1 modulates the acetylation status of the RelA/p65 subunit of NF-κB critically contributing towards regulation of the inflammatory, immune, and apoptotic responses in mammals.
Species:  Mouse
Tissue:  Macrophages
References:  7
Physiological Consequences of Altering Gene Expression
Myeloid cell–specific Sirt1 knockout mice exhibit increased inflammatory responses and susceptibility to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.
Species:  Human
Tissue:  Myeloid cells, lung tissue.
Technique:  Cre-Lox-driven recombination.
