Potential relevance to dietary restriction and ageing
Knockdown or mutation of nhr-62 suppressed the life extending effects of eat-2 mutants, a genetic model of DR, but had little effect on the lifespan under ad libitum conditions. nhr-62 also blunts the longevity response during dilution of bacterial food in liquid culture, another form of DR .
