Name
Transaldolase
Organism
Caenorhabditis elegans (AnAge)

Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing

Observations
Downregulation of tald-1 in worms increased lifespan by 14%. This increase only occurred if knock-down took place throughout development. Tald-1 downregulation in adult worms had no effect on lifespan.
% change in avg or median lifespan
Mean lifespan is 14% higher.
