- Drosophila melanogaster (AnAge)
Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing
- Acute, targeted activation of ppk23-expressing neurons using a temperature-sensitive TRPA1 channel results in decreased resistance to starvation and a decreased lifespan.
- % change in avg or median lifespan
- Median lifespan is 3-4% lower.
- Lifespan Effect
- Genetic Manipulation
