... of sex. Our main finding that old birds with higher glucose tolerance had better survival supports the hypothesis that the capacity to efficiently cope with a physiological challenge predicts lifespan, at least in old birds. * Authors for correspondence: bibianac.montoyal@uatx.mx ; s.verhulst...

... of an organism's phenotype is modified during aging (Kirkwood 2005); thus, lifespan is limited by the rate of an organism's aging. Various processes, including accumulation of oxidative damage, increases in inflammation, telomere shortening, mitochondrial dysfunction and misfolded proteins may affect the rate...

... and fitness is less clear. Here, we show that Drosophila exposed to hypoxia during their larval period subsequently show reduced starvation stress resistance and shorter lifespan as adults, with these effects being stronger in males. We find that these effects are associated with reduced whole-body insulin...

...Michael Poeschla; Dario R. Valenzano; Michael H. Dickinson; Leslie B. Vosshall; Julian A. T. Dow ABSTRACT Lifespan is a remarkably diverse trait in nature, ranging from just hours in adult mayflies to hundreds of years in the Greenland shark and quahog clam. Great disparities in lifespan are often...

..., which generally include a reduction in fitness of the carrier of the driving allele, making such systems ‘selfish’. The t haplotype is one such driver, found in house mice. It is linked to a reduction in litter size in matings among heterozygous animals, but also to increased lifespan in wild females...

Telomere length predicts individual lifespan and in this study we investigated whether embryonic growth...

Studies so far have focused on discriminating between protein and carbohydrate uptake and the consequences on fitness components at different life stages. However, it is largely unknown whether and how the developmental diets, which may entail habitat...

However, contrary to expectation, in several mammalian taxa, exceptional longevity is associated with high basal metabolic rate, and also fast evolution of mtDNA-coded...
