GenAge entry for kat-1 (Caenorhabditis elegans)
Gene information (ID: 950)
- 3-Ketoacyl-coA Thiolase
- Caenorhabditis elegans (AnAge)
Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing
- Increased accumulation of the lipofuscin-like fluorescent aging pigment, shortened median lifespan (30% reduction compared to WT). Early behavioral decline, and other abnormalities characteristic of premature aging were observed.
- % change in avg or median lifespan
- Median lifespan is 53% lower.
- Lifespan Effect
- Genetic Manipulation
- Longevity Category
