Abstract: Cellular senescence is important in tumor suppression. However, the molecular mechanisms are not completely understood. Here we show that overexpression of Sharp-1 induces growth arrest and premature senescence in fibroblast cells which is accompanied by increased intracellular ROS production and elevated acetyl and total p53 levels. On the other hand, Sirt1, a NAD+ dependent class III HDAC, inhibits cellular senescence by deacetylating p53 to inhibit p53 mediated functions. Thus, we hypothesized that Sirt1 may antagonize Sharp-1 induced senescence. We show that increasing Sirt1 activity using resveratrol or increasing its expression in Sharp-1 overexpressing cells inhibits Sharp-1 mediated senescence concomitant with deacetylation of p53 at lysine 379. Interaction studies demonstrate that associations between Sharp-1-Sirt1 and Sirt1-p53 weaken upon cellular stress but not the association between Sharp-1-p53. This suggests that Sirt1 antagonizes Sharp-1 to modulate p53 activity and functions might via regulation of protein-protein interaction.
