Project: Oxidative stress and ageing in Caenorhabditis elegans.

project duration
31-DEC-99 – 31-DEC-99
We want to determine the level of endogenous superoxide anion production as well as the activity of anti-oxygenic enzymes such as superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase and catalase in a series of short and long living mutant strains of Caenorhabditis elegans (Nematoda). We feel that this study may contribute to a better understanding of ageing in higher organisms, including man.
