Patterns of intraspecific variability in the response to caloric restriction.

Caloric restriction (CR) is cited as the most robust means of increasing lifespan across a range of taxa, yet there is a high degree of variability in the response to CR, both within and between speci...

Divergence in Age Patterns of Mortality Change Drives International Divergence in Lifespan Inequality.

In the past six decades, lifespan inequality has varied greatly within and among countries even while life expectancy has continued to increase. How and why does mortality change generate this diversi...

Plasticity of lifespan: a reaction norm perspective.

It is a well-appreciated fact that in many organisms the process of ageing reacts highly plastically, so that lifespan increases or decreases when the environment changes. The perhaps best-known examp...

Thin genu of the corpus callosum points to mutation in FOXG1 in a child with acquired microcephaly, trigonocephaly, and intellectual developmental disorder: A case report and review of literature.

The FOXG1 syndrome is emerging as a relative new entity in paediatric neurology. We report a boy with acquired microcephaly, mental retardation and a thin genu of the corpus callosum. The combination ...

The dietary proportion of essential amino acids and Sir2 influence lifespan in the honeybee.

Dietary essential amino acids have an important influence on the lifespan and fitness of animals. The expression of the NAD(+)-dependent histone deacetylase, Sir2, can be influenced by diet, but its r...
