Summary The molecular mechanisms underlying the aging process are still unclear, but the clonal accumulation of mitochondrial deletion mutants is one of the prime candidates. An important question for the mitochondrial theory of aging is to discover how defective organelles might be selected at...
Summary Aging research in vertebrates is hampered by the lack of short-lived models. Annual fishes of the genus Nothobranchius live in East African seasonal ponds. Their life expectancy in the wild is limited by the duration of the wet season and their lifespan in captivity is also short....
Summary We have examined the relationship between nucleotide excision of the main UV-induced photoproduct, the cyclobutane pyrimidine dimer and in vitro cellular senescence. An in situ semiquantitative immunocytochemical assay has demonstrated that, following a UV-C dose of 15 J m−2, young...
Summary The DAF-2 insulin/insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) receptor signals via a phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway to control dauer larva formation and adult longevity in Caenorhabditis elegans. Yet epistasis analysis suggests signal bifurcation downstream of DAF-2. We have used...
Summary Caenorhabditis elegans expresses a glutathione transferase (GST) belonging to the Pi class, for which we propose the name CeGSTP2-2. CeGSTP2-2 (the product of the gst-10 gene) has the ability to conjugate the lipid peroxidation product 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE). Transgenic C. elegans...
