The overall and adult lifespan of clk-1 fed with OP50 and UQ8 were similar, indicating the animal’s lifespan is not influenced by the different parental strain of bacteria. Lifespan of clk-1 mutants are all significantly different from N2. Only clk-1 lifespan fed with UQ10 was significantly different from the clk-1 fed with UQ6, UQ7, UQ8, UQ9 and OP50. Lifespan of clk-1(qm30) was not significantly different with UQ7 as food source relative to OP50.

Environment Interventions

Type Body
Food source Eggs were washed three times with Sbasal and transferred to plates containing a lawn of bacteria producing UQ7 or the standard bacteria strain OP50 (producing UQ8).
