  • SIRT3-deficient mice exhibit striking mitochondrial protein hyperacetylation
  • Sirt3 plays an essential role in the Caloric restriction-mediated prevention of age-related cochlear cell death and hearing loss in mice
  • Sirt3 knockout mice exhibit decreased oxygen consumption and develop oxidative stress in skeletal muscle, leading to JNK activation and impaired insulin signaling
  • mice lacking Sirt3 (Sirt3KO) placed on a high-fat diet show accelerated obesity, insulin resistance, hyperlipidemia, and steatohepatitis compared to wild-type
