Citation Apfeld J, Kenyon C. (1999). Regulation of lifespan by sensory perception in Caenorhabditis elegans.. Nature 402: 804-9. [pubmed]
Several (but not all) mutations that cause defects in sensory cilia or their support cells, or in sensory signal transduction, extend lifespan. These mutations do not further extend long-lived daf-2 mutants
