Applications of Cold Temperature Stress to Age Fractionate Caenorhabditis elegans: A Simple Inexpensive Technique
TLDR
Cold temperature stress of mixed populations of CE provides a rapid inexpensive means of obtaining three life stage–specific cohorts that allow acquisition of replicate metabolite profiles of changes associated with development, aging, and senescence.
A low cost and quick assay system using the freeliving nematode Caenorhabditis elegans to determine the effects of Kampo medicines on life span
TLDR
Of these, Rhei Rhizoma was found to extend the life span and acts as an anti-oxidant that suppresses superoxide anion generation from mitochondria.
The influence of metabolic rate on longevity in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.
TLDR
Comparisons of metabolic rate between long-lived and wild-type C. elegans under more optimized conditions indicate that the extended longevity of at least some long-living C. nematode mutants may be due to a reduction in metabolic rate, rather than an alteration of a metabolically independent genetic mechanism specific to aging.
Genetic and functional characterization of Caenorhabditis elegans srf-3, a gene involved in regulating surface antigenicity
TLDR
The data presented in this thesis emphasize the importance of glycosylation in regulating the surface antigenicity of C. elegans and can help to understand the process of pathogen adherence, the first step in the establishment of an infection, as well as how parasitic nematodes modulate the surface in order to escape the host response.
The influence of metabolic rate on longevity in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans *
TLDR
Comparisons of metabolic rate between long‐lived and wild‐type C. elegans under more optimized conditions indicate that the extended longevity of at least some long-lived C. aristans mutants may be due to a reduction in metabolic rate, rather than an alteration of a metabolically independent genetic mechanism specific to aging.
Suppression of plant parasitic nematodes in the chinampa agricultural soils
TLDR
Soil from the chinampa agricultural system in the Valley of Mexico suppressed damage by plant-parasitic nematodes to tomatoes and beans in greenhouse and growth chamber trials, indicating that one or more biotic factors were responsible for the low incidence of nematode damage.

TLDR
Estimates of the induced mutation frequency of both the visible mutants and X chromosome lethals suggests that, just as in Drosophila, the genetic units in C. elegans are large.

TLDR
Comparison of the tracks of wild-type and mutant animals responding to gradients of attractants indicates that sensory receptors in the head alone mediate the orientation response and that the direction of orientation is determined by the lateral motion of the head.
The aging process of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans in bacterial and axenic culture.
TLDR
Particular attention was paid to the rate of backwardly directed somatic waves, pharyngeal bulb pulsations, the interval between defecations and oviposition in wild type C. elegans, which lived significantly longer in axenic culture than in bacteria.
Disruption of Sex Pheromone Communication in a Nematode
TLDR
After males of Nippostrongylus brasiliensis were removed from that environment, their subsequent ability to orient to a gradient of the pheromone emanating from living females was greatly reduced, which might serve as the basis for a new, selective antihelminthic technique in which the premating communication between males and females is disrupted.
