If, on the other hand, it loses at least 30 percent of its intensity, it is regarded as methylated. In the study, the research team tested 2447 fragments in each animal. They found anyw...

Novel Enzyme Shows Potential As An Anti-HIV Target

Though three SIRT enzymes caused Tat acetylation, only one, SIRT1, is a nuclear enzyme, like Tat, suggesting that SIRT1 might work similarly in living cells.
