Namedod-19
OrganismCaenorhabditis elegans
Aging PhenotypeLife-span extension
Allele TypeRNAi
StrainN2 rrf-3(pk 1426)
Descriptiondod-19 (downstream of daf-16 protein 19) 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-19 increases life-span by 28%.
Gene FunctionUnknown.
