Symbol
esg
Name
escargot
Organism
Drosophila melanogaster (AnAge)

Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing

Observations
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
Increase
Genetic Manipulation
Mutation
Longevity Category
Anti-Longevity
