Members of the Sir2 family of NAD-dependent histone deacetylases are critical to regulation of gene expression in many organisms. In humans, the regulation of gene expression is critical to development and normal cellular function... This study seeks to investigate the role played by Sir2 in gene silencing in fission yeast, a common eukaryotic model.
