Abstract: Like the little devil who wheedles the conscience of a cartoon character contemplating a fateful decision, a worm protein guides another protein in shaping the animal's future, new work reveals. The molecule--called DIN-1--coaxes another protein to stretch longevity when a particular hormone is absent. The study might help clarify how pathways that kick in during hard times also delay aging.
