Ageing results from complex genetically and epigenetically programmed processes that are elicited in part by noxious or stressful events that cause programmed cell death. Here, we report that administration of spermidine, a natural polyamine whose intracellular concentration declines during human ageing, markedly extended the lifespan of yeast, flies and(More)
Streptomycetes are prokaryotic microorganisms that exhibit a complex, mycelial fungus-like cycle of morphological differentiation. Development involves at least two spatially separated types of cells: the branching hyphae of the substrate mycelium, which penetrate the stratum upon which the colony feeds, and the upwardly protruding hyphae of the aerial(More)
