Description: SRT-1720, also known as CAY10559 and is a drug developed by Sirtris Pharmaceuticals intended as a small-molecule activator of the sirtuin subtype SIRT1. It has similar activity in the body to the known SIRT1 activator resveratrol, but is 1000x more potent. In animal studies it was found to improve insulin sensitivity and lower plasma glucose levels in fat, muscle and liver tissue, and increased mitochondrial and metabolic function. A study of SRT1720 conducted by the National Institute on Aging found that the drug may extend the lifespan of obese mice by 44% .

|Biological target:||SRT 1720 is a selective activator of human SIRT1 with an EC1.5 of 0.16 μM and shows less potent activities agaiinst SIRT2 and SIRT3 with EC1.5s of 37 μM and > 300 μM, respectively.|
|In vitro activity:||MDA-MB-231 cells with stable expression of LC3-GFP were generated to measure the affect of SRT1720 on autophagy by observation of GFP punctae formation. Treatment with SRT1720 resulted in an increase in the number of cells with an average of 8 GFP punctae per cell (Fig. 3B). An immunoblot of LC3 will show an increase in the lower LC3-II band during autophagy. It was observed that treatment with SRT1720 caused an increase in the autophagy marker LC3-II, and this was decreased in sh-SIRT1 knockdown MDA-MB-231 cells (Fig. 3C). Next, it was determined whether blocking the PI3K pathway responsible for initiation of autophagy would affect autophagy induction by SRT1720. Also, LC3-II formation was reduced in SIRT1 and ATG7 knockout MEFs (Fig 3E). Therefore, SRT1720 increases the formation of the autophagy marker, LC3-II, through SIRT1 and ATG7. Then it was determined whether blocking autophagy induction by SRT1720 with 3-MA or ATG7 knockout cells could affect cell death. MDAMB-231 cells treated with either SRT1720 or 2.5 mM 3-MA resulted in a 65% and 18% decrease in cell viability, respectively. Treatment of wild-type MEFs with 5 µmol/L of SRT1720 resulted in a 22% decrease in cell viability, whereas, the number of ATG7 knockout cells decreased by 80% (Fig. 3G). Therefore, these results suggest that autophagy is increased during SRT1720 treatment due to cellular stress as a mechanism to promote cell survival.

|In vivo activity:||In the present study, renal susceptibility to acute ischemia–reperfusion-induced injury in young and adult mice and the role of SIRT1 was examined in this age-dependent susceptibility. The SIRT1 activator SRT-1720 but not the vehicle significantly reduced BUN and creatinine levels in mice following I/R. The effect of SRT-1720 on the kidney was also supported by histological evaluation: the kidney injury score of SRT-treated mice was significantly lower than that of vehicle-treated mice (SRT 1.58±0.14 vs. vehicle 2.06±0.15, outer medulla; P<0.05) (Figure 4a–c). A higher cellular proliferation rate, as assessed by PCNA, was found 48h after I/R in the kidneys of young mice than in the kidneys of adult mice, and SRT-1720 treatment increased cellular proliferation in adult mice. The SIRT1 activator SRT-1720 reduced the expression of p53 in the kidney. In summary, the present data identify SIRT1 as a protective mediator in the kidneys of young mice following renal ischemia–reperfusion injury. The SIRT1 activator SRT-1720 protects against I/R injury by attenuating apoptosis and promoting regeneration, whereas an SIRT1 deficiency worsens kidney tissue injury following I/R. These studies suggest that SIRT1 is an important survival factor that may be a novel therapeutic target during ischemic episodes.
