Alternate Name
OrganismDrosophila melanogaster
Aging PhenotypeNo effect on life-span
Allele TypeN/A
DescriptionAdditon of 0.66 ng/fly/day (R)-N-(2-heptyl)-N-methylpropargylamine to a sucrose-based diet resulted in no significant effect on life-span (Jordens et al., 1999).
Gene FunctionMAO B (monoamine oxidase) inhibitor
Other PhenotypesLife-span reduction due to galactose feeding is partially suppressed by supplementation with (R)-deprenyl or (R)-N-(2-heptyl)-N-methylpropargylamine (Jordens et al., 1999).
