Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing

Observations
Deletion of mir-80 in worms resulted in increased lifespan and healthspan compared to wild type worms. Average age at 75% mortality was increased by 24%. Pharyngeal pumping rates were maintained significantly later into life. Locomotory ageing was also delayed without altering behaviour. These effects were exerted via a dietary restriction mechanism.
