GenAge entry for Hsp67Bc (Drosophila melanogaster)
Gene information (ID: 2103)
- Heat shock gene 67Bc
- Drosophila melanogaster (AnAge)
Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing
- Overexpression of Hsp67Bc led to a slight but statistically significant increase in lifespan (5%). In addition, Hsp67Bc was found to be effective in preventing toxic protein aggregation in a HSP70-independent manner.
- % change in avg or median lifespan
- Median lifespan is 6% higher.
