Glycine promotes longevity in Caenorhabditis elegans in a methionine cycle-dependent fashion

The present study shows that glycine supplementation prolongs longevity and drives a genome-wide inhibition effect on C. elegans gene expression, and reveals a novel role for glycine as a promoter of longevity and brings new insight into the role of one-carbon amino acids in the regulation of aging that may ultimately be beneficial for humans.

Metabolomic signature associated with reproduction-regulated aging in Caenorhabditis elegans

Based on a comprehensive metabolic analysis, novel insight is provided into the relationship between longevity and metabolism regulated by germline signals in C. elegans, and it is demonstrated that aging is characterized by metabolome remodeling and metabolic decline.

Metabolomics and lipidomics in Caenorhabditis elegans using a single-sample preparation

A robust and sensitive analytical method for the semi-quantitative analysis of >100 polar (metabolomics) and >1000 apolar (lipidomics) metabolites in C. elegans, using a single-sample preparation, which provides a powerful analytical tool that maximizes metabolic data yield from a single sample.

Changes of Protein Turnover in Aging Caenorhabditis elegans*

The data suggests increased heterogeneity of protein turnover of the translation machinery, whereasprotein turnover of ubiquitin-proteasome and antioxidant systems are well-preserved over time, suggesting that maintenance of quality control mechanisms is a protective strategy in aging worms, although the ultimate proteome collapse is inescapable.

Multi-Omics and Genome-Scale Modeling Reveal a Metabolic Shift During C. elegans Aging

A multi-omics systems biology study of the metabolic changes that occur during aging in Caenorhabditis elegans and presents a novel Flux Balance Analysis method that combined biomass production and targeted metabolomics information to generate an objective function that is more suitable for aging studies.

Genome-wide transcriptomics of aging in the rotifer Brachionus manjavacas, an emerging model system

The first examination of changes in gene expression over lifespan in rotifers is provided, suggesting that small but coordinated changes in expression of many genes in pathways that integrate diverse functions drive the aging process.

The Role of Ca2+ Signaling in Aging and Neurodegeneration: Insights from Caenorhabditis elegans Models

The evidence obtained using this model organism to understand the role of Ca2+ signaling in aging and neurodegeneration is summarized.

A multidimensional omics analysis of the DNA damage response in Caenorhabditis elegans

Proteome, lipidome, and phosphoproteome analysis of NER-deficient animals in response to UV-B treatment is conducted to gain comprehensive insights into the full range of physiological adaptations to unrepaired DNA damage and assign central roles for the IIS regulator DAF-2, and the EGF- and AMPK-like signalling pathways in orchestrating the adaptive response to DNA damage.

Lipid and Carbohydrate Metabolism in Caenorhabditis elegans

This review outlines lipid and carbohydrate structures as well as biosynthesis and breakdown pathways that have been characterized in C. elegans and brings attention to functional studies using mutant strains that reveal physiological roles for specific lipids and carbohydrates during development, aging, and adaptation to changing environmental conditions.



Altered proteostasis in aging and heat shock response in C. elegans revealed by analysis of the global and de novo synthesized proteome

Interestingly, although the net rate of protein synthesis is reduced in aged animals, the analyses indicate that the synthesis of certain proteins such as the vitellogenins increases with age.

Metabolomics Analysis Uncovers That Dietary Restriction Buffers Metabolic Changes Associated with Aging in Caenorhabditis elegans

It is shown that significant changes in metabolite profiles precede the major physiological decline that accompanies aging and that DR protects from some of those metabolic changes, and that choline kinase function in the intestine can regulate lifespan.

Glyoxalase‐1 prevents mitochondrial protein modification and enhances lifespan in Caenorhabditis elegans

A novel mechanism for regulating mitochondrial ROS production and lifespan in C. elegans is described: progressive mitochondrial protein modification by the glycolysis‐derived dicarbonyl metabolite methylglyoxal (MG).

Contribution of sams-1 and pmt-1 to lipid homoeostasis in adult Caenorhabditis elegans.

Both SAMS-1 and PMT-1 were shown to contribute to the homoeostasis of TG and PC levels in C. elegans, which would provide an important survival strategy under harsh environmental conditions.

S-Adenosyl methionine synthetase 1 limits fat storage in Caenorhabditis elegans

It is proposed that the physiological function of SAMS-1, a highly conserved enzyme involved in one-carbon metabolism, is the limitation of fat storage to ensure proper growth and reproduction.

Disruption of insulin signalling preserves bioenergetic competence of mitochondria in ageing Caenorhabditis elegans

It is concluded that low daf-2 function alters the overall rate of ageing by a yet unidentified mechanism with an indirect protective effect on mitochondrial function.

Dietary Restriction during Development Enlarges Intestinal and Hypodermal Lipid Droplets in Caenorhabditis elegans

dDR increases the triglyceride to protein ratio, enlarges lipid droplets and alters the expression of genes functioning in lipid metabolism in C. elegans, which might be an effective adaptation to conserve fat stores in animals subjected to limiting food supply during development.

Mechanisms of amino acid-mediated lifespan extension in Caenorhabditis elegans

Lifespan extension appears to be caused by altered mitochondrial TCA cycle metabolism and respiratory substrate utilization resulting in the activation of the DAF-16/FOXO and SKN-1/Nrf2 stress response pathways.
