Pop the cork--a mouse just broke the longevity record. The new champion is a tiny male growth hormone receptor knockout mouse who died just 1 week short of his fifth birthday (1814 days old)--beating the previous record holder by 153 days. He lived in a posh private cage with a shredded cotton throne in Andrzej Bartke's lab. Those with long-lived mice of their own can learn about the Methuselah Mouse Prize.
