    ..Taken together, the study provides functional evidence for a crucial role of vitellogenins and the steroid-signaling pathway in determination of resistance against bacteria. ..

    ..The other pathway is the oncogenic ras signaling pathway, whose action on germline as well as vulval development appears to be modulated by cytoplasmic ROS. ..

    ..We conclude that an increase, not a decrease in fuel consumption, via an accelerated oxidation of fuels in the TCA cycle is involved in life span regulation; this mechanism may be conserved across phylogeny. ..
