Abstract: COLD SPRING HARBOR, NEW YORK--A phantom hormone hampers worm survival and promotes aging. Now, researchers have taken a step toward identifying the furtive molecule, according to work presented here on 7 October 2004 at the Molecular Genetics of Aging meeting. The advance should help scientists pad their knowledge about pathways that tweak longevity in nematodes.
