GenAge entry for teq (Drosophila melanogaster)
Gene information (ID: 2086)
- Drosophila melanogaster (AnAge)
Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing
- Flies with a Tequila mutation (Teq f01792) had a 31% increase in mean lifespan. Both male and female flies were smaller and had reduced body weight. Downregulation of Tequila in insulin-producing neurons also significantly extended lifespan.
- % change in avg or median lifespan
- Mean lifespan is 31% higher.
