    • Lifespan extension in a semelparous chordate occurs via developmental growth arrest just prior to meiotic entry 

      Subramaniam, Gunasekaran; Campsteijn, Coen; Thompson, Eric (PLoS, 2014-04-02)
      It is proposed that the ageing process is linked to signaling from the germline such that the rate of ageing can be adjusted to the state of the reproductive system, allowing these two processes to co-evolve. Mechanistic ...
