Genetic mutants with ada-2, daf-2 alterations

    Names of genes are ordered alphabetically. For the order of interventions, please see the specific paper.
  • Temperature °C

    25

  • Lifespan (days)

    28.8

  • Lifespan change (compared to wild type)

    95.92%

  • Phenotype

    Fifty-seven gene inactivations (corresponding to 55 RNAi clones) more dramatically shortened the life span of daf-2 animals compared with daf-2;daf-16, but still shortened the life span of daf-2;daf-16 animals, suggesting that they function in a parallel/converging pathway to insulin/IGF1 signaling

  • Lifespan comparisons

    Double mutant ada-2(RNAi);daf-2(e1370) has a lifespan of 28.8 days, while single mutant daf-2(e1370) has a lifespan of 36.7 days, single mutant ada-2(RNAi) has a lifespan of 11.5 days and wild type has a lifespan of 14.7 days.

Wormbase description: daf-2 encodes a receptor tyrosine kinase that is the C. elegans insulin/IGF receptor ortholog; DAF-2 activity is required for a number of processes in C. elegans, including embryonic and larval development, formation of the developmentally arrested dauer larval stage (diapause), larval developmental timing, adult longevity, reproduction, fat storage, salt chemotaxis learning, and stress resistance, including response to high temperature, oxidative stress, and bacterial infection; DAF-2 signals through a conserved PI 3-kinase pathway to negatively regulate the activity of DAF-16, a Forkhead-related transcription factor, by inducing its phosphorylation and nuclear exclusion; in addition, DAF-2 negatively regulates the nuclear localization, and hence transcriptional activity, of SKN-1 in intestinal nuclei; amongst the 38 predicted insulin-like molecules in C. elegans, genetic and microarray analyses suggest that at least DAF-28, INS-1, and INS-7 are likely DAF-2 ligands; genetic mosaic and tissue-specific promoter studies indicate that daf-2 can function cell nonautonomously and within multiple cell types to influence dauer formation and adult lifespan, likely by regulating the production of secondary endocrine signals that coordinate growth and longevity throughout the animal; temporal analysis of daf-2 function indicates that daf-2 regulates lifespan, reproduction, and diapause independently, at distinct times during the animal's life cycle.
