AnAge entry for Podospora anserina
Classification (HAGRID: 04244)
- Podospora anserina
- Common name
- Filamentous fungus
Lifespan, ageing, and relevant traits
- Maximum longevity
- Not yet established
Ageing in these organisms is associated with the accumulation of defective mitochondrial DNA . Lifespan can be measured as the time it takes for cultures to stop growing. One mutant reportedly grew for over 12 years without signs of ageing . One study identified several pathways affected during ageing. Transcripts linked to ribosomes and proteasome quality control decreased. Transcript profiles associated with autophagy increased. Those associated with energy metabolism fluctuated .
