Worms Control Lifespan at High Temperatures, UCSF Study Finds
Date:4/16/2009

he processes that affect aging, which is something that warm-blooded animals do by controlling the temperature itself.

This system may allow the animal to maintain a more normal rate of aging even if the temperature rises, Kenyon said.

Previous research also has linked the rate of aging in mammals with temperature. If mice are tricked into thinking that they are in a hot climate, they lower their body temperature and live longer.

While similar steroid hormone pathways exist in humans, Kenyon stressed that, at least for now, this research is more relevant to our general understanding of biology than to any human biomedical connection.

“These findings probably won’t result in a new cure for cancer or Alzheimer’s,” she said. “But they may force us to rewrite the section on cold-blooded animals in high school biology textbooks.”

The lead investigator on the paper and sole other author was Seung-Jae Lee, who is now with the Department of Biological Science, School of Interdisciplinary Bioscience and Bioengineering, World Class University Information Technology Conversions Engineering Program, POSTECH, Korea.
