Recombinant proteins for sirtuin 6 are available from various sources. In humans, this protein has a Uniprot ID of Q8N6T7 and has an annotated function: 'NAD-dependent protein deacetylase.' This protein is 355 amino acids in length and 39.2 kilodaltons in mass. It has been designated a subcellular localization as: nuclear. This protein is encoded by the gene SIRT6. Other names also exist, such as: NAD-dependent protein deacetylase sirtuin-6, SIR2-like protein 6, regulatory protein SIR2 homolog 6, sir2-related protein type 6, sirtuin type 6. As many as 2 isoforms have been named. This protein is conserved in other species, including: mouse, rat.
