InterventionAntimycin A
Alternate Name
OrganismSaccharomyces cerevisiae (chronological)
Aging PhenotypeShortened life-span
Allele TypeN/A
DescriptionIncubation in the presense of 1 uM anitmycin A decreases stationary phase survival (Fabrizio et al., 2003).
Gene FunctionAntimycin A is a respiratory inhibitor.
Other PhenotypesTreatment of C. elegans with antimycin A extends life-span in that organism (Dillin et al., 2002).
