OrganismSaccharomyces cerevisiae (chronological)
Aging PhenotypeShortened life-span
Allele TypeOverexpression
DescriptionOverexpression of CTT1 alone in results in a slight decrease in stationary phase survival (Fabrizio et al., 2003).
Gene FunctionCytosolic catalase T.
Other PhenotypesOverexpression of CTT1 in combination with overexpression of SOD1 increases stationary phase survival by about 10% (Fabrizio et al., 2003).
