GenAge Database of Ageing-Related Genes
Welcome to GenAge, a manually curated database of genes related to ageing. GenAge is divided into genes related to longevity and/or ageing in model organisms and ageing-related human genes. The section on human ageing-related genes includes the few genes directly related to ageing in humans and the best candidate genes obtained from model organisms. Human genes are thus considerably better annotated and may serve as a starting point for future studies, including genetic association studies, or even for exploiting clinical interventions in human ageing.
A list of genes analyzed for their possible association with human longevity are also available. Though deprecated, a list of genes that may modulate ageing in mammals and a list of genes related to ageing in model organisms clustered according to functional groups are available as well. Also available is a database of genes commonly altered during ageing drawn from a microarray study.
GenAge is employed by many researchers and has been cited in several publications. It was highlighted in Science (307:187), Nature Reviews Genetics (5:1362), and BioTechniques (39:21).
