High impact information on rsks-1

  • We observe that inhibition of various genes in the translation initiation complex including ifg-1, the worm homologue of eIF4G, which is a scaffold protein in the cap-binding complex; and rsks-1, the worm homologue of S6 kinase, results in lifespan extension in Caenorhabditis elegans [1].

Biological context of rsks-1

  • Inhibition of ifg-1 or rsks-1 also slows development, reduces fecundity and increases resistance to starvation [1].
