SIRT6是沉默信息调节蛋白家族中的一员,具有烟酰胺腺嘌呤二核苷酸依赖的组蛋白去乙酰化酶活性和单ADP-核糖基转移酶活性。SIRT6在机体关键的生理和病理过程中起着重要作用,包括脂代谢、炎症、氧化应激以及纤维化等,被认为是代谢综合征的潜在治疗靶点。SIRT6敲除小鼠表现出严重的脂肪肝,非酒精性脂肪性肝炎(nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, NASH)小鼠模型的肝组织中SIRT6的表达量明显低于正常小鼠,而过表达SIRT6能显著减轻NASH所引起的肝损伤,提示SIRT6可能具有保护NASH动物模型的作用。本文将重点综述SIRT6在NASH发生、发展过程中的重要调节作用。

SIRT6, a member of the silencing information regulatory protein family, is a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-dependent histone deacetylase and an ADP-ribose transferase enzyme. It plays an important role in fundamental physiological and pathological processes, including lipid metabolism, inflammation, oxidative stress and fibrosis, and is considered as a potential therapeutic target for metabolic syndrome. SIRT6 knockout mice displayed severe fatty liver, and the expression of SIRT6 in the liver of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) mice was significantly lower than that of normal mice. Overexpression of SIRT6 significantly ameliorated NASH-induced liver damage. It is suggested that SIRT6 may play a key role in protecting against NASH. In this paper, we review the important regulatory functions of SIRT6 in the occurrence and development of NASH.

Key words: SIRT6; nonalcoholic steatohepatitis; lipid metabolism; inflammation; liver fibrosis
