Unraveling the Complexities of SIRT1-Mediated Mitochondrial Regulation in Skeletal Muscle

Philp, Andrew1; Schenk, Simon2

Collapse Box


Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) is a purported central regulator of skeletal muscle mitochondrial biogenesis. Herein, we discuss our recent work using conditional mouse models, which highlight the complexities of SIRT1 biology in vivo, and question the role of SIRT1 in regulating mitochondrial function and mitochondrial adaptations to endurance exercise. Furthermore, we discuss the possible contribution of proposed SIRT1 substrates to muscle mitochondrial biogenesis.
