Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing

Observations
p38K-DKO adult flies appeared normal on eclosion but had a severely reduced lifespan. ingle mutants of p38Ka (p38Kadel) or p38Kb (p38Kd45) also had significantly reduced lifespan, with the loss of p38Kb resulting in a stronger phenotype.
% change in avg or median lifespan
Average lifespan is 60% lower.
Lifespan Effect
