The Sirtuin family of histone/protein deacetylatingenzymes has gained considerable interest both for their recognized importance in processes such as gene silencing and expression and in cellular metabolism. We have developed a convenient and sensitive screening methodology to detect and measure both inhibitors and activators of sirtuin activity. Here we describe a one-step, homogeneous luminescent assay for the detection of activity for multiple sirtuin isotypes. The reagent formulation contains a pro-luminescent sirtuin peptide substrate, NAD+, ATP, thermostable luciferase, and a developer enzyme that cleaves deacetylatedlysine residues. The addition of an active sirtuin enzyme source leads to a robust luminescent signal within minutes with “glow-type” characteristics lasting for several hours.
