Sirtuins have been a hot topic. In light of this I'd like to see a paper that tells us what about SIRT6 is and isn't supported by evidence.

I agree, and it's a bit too early on the timescale of publications to see a paper that re-analyzes all that has previously been published on the topic in light of this information.

That said, we've found around 2,500 articles which discuss SIRT6 [1], which is about 10 times more than the 267 articles that cite the retracted study according to the article. Based on this, I would assume most of what we do know about SIRT6 would still hold up.
