GenAge entry for esg (Drosophila melanogaster)
Gene information (ID: 2072)
- Drosophila melanogaster (AnAge)
Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing
- Insertion of a p-element in the esg gene results in longer lived male mutants. Revertant alleles, in which the p-element was excised displayed reverted lifespan similar to that of the controls.
- % change in avg or median lifespan
- Male lifespan is 21.1% higher.
- Lifespan Effect
- Genetic Manipulation
