Your first sentence indicates some sirtuins are ribosyltransferases. True, but the correct and more accurate term, that appears in the table, is ADP-ribosyltransferases. This should be corrected in the text.

Accessible[edit]

I'm not sure of the wikiguidelines on accessibility, but this pages blurb at the top isn't accessible to most human beings. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.187.99.79 (talk) 11:27, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

I would disagree, it covers all the most important points quite clearly. Admittedly it uses a lot of specific language, but if you were to define all those terms the article would be twice as long and more difficult for people who have a reasonable understanding. If you have any specific suggestions though, we could try and adapt it. Abergabe (talk) 14:04, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

This read like nonsense[edit]

I am sure it isn't nonsense (actually I'm not) but the blurb reads like every other 'miracle diet' I have seen during the last 3 decades.

I haven't followed any of them so don't know if they work but given that the newspapers in Britain are having a ball promoting what seem like disgusting menus I suspect someone is being taken for a ride Cannonmc (talk) 18:12, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
