Drosophila melanogasterGenAge entry for mub (Drosophila melanogaster)

Gene information (ID: 2070)

Symbol
mub
Name
mushroom-body expressed
Organism
Drosophila melanogaster (AnAge)

Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing

Observations
Insertion of a p-element in the mub gene results in longer lived mutants for both sexes. Revertant alleles, in which the p-element was excised displayed reverted lifespan similar to that of the controls.
% change in avg or median lifespan
Lifespan is 21.4% higher.
