Award Description: To accelerate the rate of progress on the parent grant (R01 AG028867; Molecular Mechanisms of Mammalian SIRT6 Function), we request funds to (1) create a new job to hire a new Post-doctoral Fellow; (2) retain a Research Assistant/Lab Manager who may otherwise be terminated; and (3) increase the hours for this job from a part-time to full-time position. The increased work made possible to by the Recovery Act Administrative Supplement will address the molecular mechanisms of two novel targets of SIRT6, a human gene that is linked to lifespan regulation and age-related disease (and the subject of the parent grant). The study will characterize how SIRT6 influences the functions of these new targets in chromatin regulation (Parent Grant Aim 1) and genome stabilization/DNA repair (Parent Grant Aim 2). The increased personnel and effort dedicated to these studies will greatly increase the efficiency and rate of progress of the research grant work.
