VRK-1 Protein Activation Increased Lifespan of Worms

South Korean researchers increased production of the VRK-1 protein to increase the lifespan of the C. elegans worm. The effect seems to be about a 30% increase when we look at the difference in 50% survival levels. It seems to be about 16 days versus 12 days.
