Sirtuins are a family of NAD+-dependent deacetylases implicated in a wide variety of age-associated pathologies, including cardiovascular disorders. Among the seven mammalian sirtuins, SIRT2 modulates various cellular processes through the deacetylation or deacylation of their target proteins. Notably, the levels of SIRT2 in the heart decline with age and other pathological conditions, leading to cardiovascular dysfunction. In the present review, we discuss the emerging roles of SIRT2 in cardiovascular dysfunction and heart failure associated with factors like age, hypertension, oxidative stress, and diabetes. We also discuss the potential of using inhibitors to study the unexplored role of SIRT2 in the heart. While SIRT2 undoubtedly plays a crucial role in the cardiovascular system, its functions are only beginning to be understood, making it an attractive candidate for further research in the field. © 2021 Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology
