Gene information (ID: 2227)
- TetraSPanin 3
- Caenorhabditis elegans (AnAge)
Potential relevance to longevity and/or ageing
- Downregulation of tsp-3 in worms extended lifespan by 41% at 25 degrees celcius but not at 15 degrees celcius. Functional decline was delayed in the long-lived worms.
- % change in avg or median lifespan
- Mean lifespan is 41% higher.
- Lifespan Effect
- Genetic Manipulation
