Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing
- Male flies expressing mlp84B RNAi in the heart display bradycardia and heart rhythm abnormalities and have a shortened mean lifespan compared with controls. No lifespan reduction was observed in females.
- % change in avg or median lifespan
- Median male lifespan is approximately 35% lower.
- Lifespan Effect
- Genetic Manipulation
- RNA interference, Knockdown
- Longevity Category
