Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing

Observations
Transgenic expression of ECP (KRA) results in decreased median lifespan by 25% for males and 6% for females, while knockdown of ECP (RNA interference) results in an increased median lifespan by 18-25% in males and 16-21% in female flies.
% change in avg or median lifespan
Female median lifespan is 16-21% higher. Male median lifespan is 18-25% higher.
