The Proteomics of Longevity in Some Worms

Following their previously published findings (reviewed here on Accelerating Proteomics), Depuydt et al. have now turned their attention to harvesting more data from the proteomic profile of long-lived daf-2 mutant Caenorhabditis elegans worms.1 These worms, which are characterized by disruption of the insulin/insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) signaling (IIS) pathway, live longer than wild-type C. elegans even Read the rest of this article
