daf-41/p23: A Small Protein Heating Up Lifespan Regulation

PLOS Genetics, DOI:10.1371/journal.pgen.1005188

PLOS Genetics, online article

The life span of non-renewing organisms is determined by the potential of their individual cells to maintain their functions while aging. Nematodes, like Caenorhabditis elegans with their 20 days of adult life, have proven to be excellent model systems to study organismal lifespan, its variability, and its regulation.
