Namedod-18
OrganismCaenorhabditis elegans
Aging PhenotypeLife-span extension
Allele TypeRNAi
StrainN2 fer(15); fem-1(hc17)
Descriptiondod-18 (downstream of daf-16 protein 18) was identified in a genomic screen for genes that are differentially transcribed in daf-16 and daf-2 RNAi animals (Murphy et al., 2003). RNAi of dod-18 increases life-span by 30%.
Gene FunctionUnknown.
