Research Uncovers Gene Enhancing Longevity
Gene daf-31.png A research team at Nanjing University has found a new gene named daf-31 in caenorhabditis elegans (C elegans) that can enhance longevity of the species, local Modern Express reported. Gene daf-31 encodes a protein that regulates C elegans larval development, metabolism and adult lifespan. Increase of the gene can prolong elegans lifespan, while its mutation or disappearance would lead the worm to accumulate fat and die, according to deputy professor Chen Di, who led the study.
