Identification of direct DAF-16 targets controlling longevity, metabolism and diapause by chromatin immunoprecipitation

DAF-16, a forkhead transcription factor, is a key regulator of longevity, metabolism and dauer diapause in Caenorhabditis elegans. The precise mechanism by which DAF-16 regulates multiple functions, however, is poorly understood. Here, we used chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) to identify direct targets of DAF-16. We cloned 103 target sequences… CONTINUE READING
