Study fingers abettors of life-stretching protein

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: When prosecutors are trying to break up a Mafia conspiracy, they usually start with the lowly perpetrators and work up to the bosses. Researchers probing how one biochemical pathway controls worm aging are following the opposite course. They know that the protein DAF-16 extends survival, but they are still rounding up the genes that do its bidding. A new study catches more than 100 genes receiving orders from DAF-16.
