Gene information (ID: 2167)
- Caenorhabditis elegans (AnAge)
Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing
- Mir-246 loss of function mutant worms demonstrated a 10% decrease in lifespan. In contrast worms overexpressing mir-246 showed an 3% increase in mean lifespan. In addition mir-246 was found to be highly upregulated during ageing.
- % change in avg or median lifespan
- Mean lifespan is 10% lower.
