n.
A nematode (Caenorhabditis elegans) that was the first animal whose genome was completely sequenced and is widely studied by researchers because it has a small genome and transparent skin.

The researchers studied the drug's mechanism in the tiny roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans, a species which has a lifespan of only three weeks, and found that as the worms age, they get smaller, wrinkle up and become less mobile.

Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- An enzyme-blocking molecule can extend the lifespan of Caenorhabditis elegans roundworms by as much as 45 percent, largely by modulating a cannabinoid biological pathway, according to a new study.

"Our study reveals how minocycline prevents protein aggregation and lays the foundation for drug-development efforts aimed at optimising this already-approved drug for a range of neurodegenerative diseases." For the study, reported in the journal eLife, the team first tested 21 different molecules known to extend lifespan in young and old Caenorhabditis elegans (C.
