GenAge entry for NPF (Drosophila melanogaster)
Gene information (ID: 1924)
- neuropeptide F
- Drosophila melanogaster (AnAge)
Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing
- Activation of npf-expressing neurons using a temperature-sensitive TRPA1 channel results in decreased resistance to starvation and a decreased lifespan.
- % change in avg or median lifespan
- Median lifespan is approximately 25% lower.
- Lifespan Effect
- Genetic Manipulation
