The effects of ambient temperature on life span, lipid peroxidation, superoxide dismutase, and phospholipase A2 activity in Drosophila melanogaster.


Aging changes were examined in Drosophila melanogaster. Lifespan was determined in two strains of male and female Drosophila raised at 19 degrees, 24 degrees, and 29 degrees C. The results show an inverse relationship between lifespan and temperature. In addition, lipid peroxidation rates and superoxide dismutase activity were measured in homogenates and… (More)
