    ..Our results are consistent with the 'uncoupling to survive' hypothesis, which states that dissipation of the DeltaPsi(m) will extend lifespan. ..

    ..Thus, our current view of the genetics of aging has probably not been distorted substantially by selection bias. ..

    ..Our results implicate peroxisomal dysfunction in pathologic lipid droplet expansion in animals and illustrate how dietary factors modulate the phenotype of such genetic defects. ..
