Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing

Observations
RNA interference targeting rec-8, after the L4 stage, increased the longevity of SR708 worms by 26%, but not in the wild-type CL2a strain. SR708 is a recombinant-inbred strain differing from CL2a by insertion of the Bergerac-BO-derived lsq4 allele, and is shorter-lived than CL2a. This suggests that RNA interference of rec-8, rescues the longevity phenotype of SR708 worm strain
