Switching On Longevity

Energy-measuring molecule might stretch life span

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Growing older is exhausting, even for nematodes, but a particular protein serves as a worm tonic, according to new research. The molecule senses energy shortages and fortifies the animals, extending their lives. The work also uncovers the molecule's interplay with the much-studied insulin-like signaling pathway.
