Visceral Reaction

A nematode's intestine, not just its neurons, dictates its aging rate

Mitch Leslie;2003/46/nw157

Key Words: GFP • AB blastomere • dauer

Abstract: When it comes to aging, nematodes listen to their gut as well as their head, according to new work. The study indicates that the intestine helps determine how fast the animal grows old, adding a new twist to previous work that implicated the worm's neurons.
