Resveratrol Prolongs Lifespan and Retards the Onset of Age-Related Markers in a Short-Lived Vertebrate
Resveratrol, a natural phytoalexin found in grapes and red wine, increases longevity in the short-lived invertebrates Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila and exerts a variety of biological effectsExpand

Annual fishes of the genus Nothobranchius as a model system for aging research
Aging research in vertebrates is hampered by the lack of short‐lived models. Annual fishes of the genus Nothobranchius live in East African seasonal ponds. Their life expectancy in the wild isExpand

Large Differences in Aging Phenotype between Strains of the Short-Lived Annual Fish Nothobranchius furzeri
Background A laboratory inbred strain of the annual fish Nothobranchius furzeri shows exceptionally short life expectancy and accelerated expression of age markers. In this study, we analyze newExpand

Regulation of life span by the gut microbiota in the short-lived African turquoise killifish
Gut bacteria occupy the interface between the organism and the external environment, contributing to homeostasis and disease. Yet, the causal role of the gut microbiota during host aging is largelyExpand

Temperature affects longevity and age‐related locomotor and cognitive decay in the short‐lived fish Nothobranchius furzeri
Temperature variations are known to modulate aging and life‐history traits in poikilotherms as different as worms, flies and fish. In invertebrates, temperature affects lifespan by modulating theExpand

A Platform for Rapid Exploration of Aging and Diseases in a Naturally Short-Lived Vertebrate
VIDEO ABSTRACT Aging is a complex process that affects multiple organs. Modeling aging and age-related diseases in the lab is challenging because classical vertebrate models have relatively longExpand

From the bush to the bench: the annual Nothobranchius fishes as a new model system in biology
African annual fishes from the genus Nothobranchius are small teleosts that inhabit temporary water bodies subject to annual desiccation due to the alternation of the monsoon seasons. Given theirExpand

Shape analysis of female facial attractiveness
Previous studies have suggested that female facial attractiveness is associated with exaggerated sex-specific facial traits and averageness. Here we applied geometric morphometrics, a method forExpand

Inverse resource allocation between vision and olfaction across the genus Drosophila
Divergent populations across different environments are exposed to critical sensory information related to locating a host or mate, as well as avoiding predators and pathogens. These sensory signalsExpand

The short-lived fish Nothobranchius furzeri as a new model system for aging studies
Genetic and pharmacological research on aging is hampered by the lifespan of available vertebrate models. We recently initiated studies on Nothobranchius furzeri, a species with a maximum lifeExpand
