Gene information (ID: 2166)
- Caenorhabditis elegans (AnAge)
Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing
- Mir-71 loss of function mutant worms demonstrated a 48% decrease in lifespan. In contrast worms overexpressing mir-71 showed an 8% increase in mean lifespan. In addition mir-71 was found to be highly upregulated during ageing.
- % change in avg or median lifespan
- Mean lifespan is 48% lower.
