Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing

Observations
Deletion increased mean and maximum lifespan by 20%.
% change in max lifespan
Maximum lifespan is 20% higher.
% change in avg or median lifespan
Average lifespan is 20% higher.

    Observations
    Deletion of TOR1 substantially extended chronological life span, increasing median survival almost 3-fold (wild-type 4.5 days, tor1 null 12 days). By 21 days in culture, the vast majority of wild-type cells had died (>99.9%), whereas many tor1 null cells remained viable. Deletion of TOR1 also extended the chronological life span of the relatively short-lived strain BY4742, one of the two haploid genetic backgrounds of the widely used Yeast Knockout Collection available from Open Biosystems. Deletion of TOR1 fails to extendLS in Petite strains that are unable to respire
