There are seven SIRT isoforms in mammals, with different biological activities including gene regulation, metabolism and apoptosis. Despite recent controversy about sirtuins function in some organisms, among them SIRT3 is the only sirtuin whose increased expression has been shown to correlate with an extended life span in humans. SIRT3 is a member of the sirtuin family of NAD+ dependent deacetylases, which is localized to the mitochondria and is enriched in kidney, brown adipose tissue, heart, and other metabolically active tissues. It is an endogenous negative regulator of cardiac hypertrophy, which protects hearts by suppressing cellular levels of ROS and modulates mitochondrial intermediary metabolism and fatty acid utilization during fasting. Another one, Hydrogen sulfide is produced within the human body, and relaxes the vascular endothelium and smooth muscle cells, which is important to maintaining clean arteries as one age. It functions as an antioxidant and inhibits expression of pro-inflammatory factors, all of which imply an important role in aging and age-associated diseases. The aim of this review is to find out the anti aging properties of SIRT3 and H2S that can be used to extend the life span of human as a preventive and therapeutic agent.
