Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing

Observations
ZK384.2 appears to inhibit the growth of gld-1 tumours. RNA interference reduced mean lifespan up to 18% in wild type animals, 15% in daf-2 mutants and 28% in daf-2/gld-1 mutants.
% change in avg or median lifespan
Average lifespan is 18% lower.
Lifespan Effect
Decrease
Genetic Manipulation
