Some years ago we applied simultaneously an identical regime of selection for late-life reproduction to several normal-lived sister lines (Ra and Rb) so as to produce several selected long-lived sister lines (La and Lb). The long-lived La and Lb sister lines had statistically identical longevity phenotypes and paraquat resistance phenotypes; however, we(More)
Patterns of antioxidant gene expression and of oxidative damage were measured throughout the adult life span of a selected long-lived strain (La) of Drosophila melanogaster and compared to that of their normal-lived progenitor strain (Ra). Extended longevity in the La strain is correlated with enhanced antioxidant defense system gene expression,(More)
