SIRT1 LKO: liver-specific SIRT1 knockout mouse on the C57BL/6 background
Reference: Purushotham A et al.(2009) Hepatocyte-specific deletion of SIRT1 alters fatty acid metabolism and results in hepatic steatosis and inflammation Cell Metab. 9: 327-338 [PMID: 19356714]

Interaction Information:

Comment SIRT1 LKO mice on high-fat diet displayed significantly lower mRNA levels of mitochondrial glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase (mtGPAT), acyl coenzyme A: diacylglycerol acyltransferase 1 (DGAT1), and acyl coenzyme A: diacylglycerol acyltransferase 2 (DGAT2), genes involved in the esterification of fatty acids to glycerol for the synthesis of triglycerides, suggesting that the increase in liver free fatty acids in SIRT1 LKO mice may also be a consequence of impaired fatty acid esterification.
