Locomotor activity as a function of age and life span in Drosophila melanogaster overexpressing hsp70.

Abstract

Heat shock protein induction might be responsible for the longevity increase conferred by exposure to non-lethal stresses. To test this hypothesis, we studied in transgenic Drosophila melanogaster overexpressing hsp70 and controls, two behavioral variables (spontaneous locomotor activity and climbing activity) to evaluate the rate of aging, and life span… (More)
