Abstract

Diseases due to DNA damage repair machinery defects can resemble premature aging. In this issue of Cell Metabolism, Scheibye-Knudsen et al. (2014) demonstrate that increasing NAD(+) levels may reverse the inactivation of Sirt1 and mitochondrial defects in Cockayne Syndrome B that stem from nuclear NAD(+) depletion by the DNA repair protein PARP.
