Nakaya S, et al. (2012) New rapid screening method for anti-aging compounds using budding yeast and identification of beauveriolide I as a potent active compound. Biosci Biotechnol Biochem 76(6):1226-8
Abstract: The chronological lifespan (CLS) of budding yeast is a model for the aging of post-mitotic cells in higher eukaryotes. We report here the development of a new method to assess yeast CLS. The new assay is simple, convenient and labor-saving. We applied this new method to screen natural compounds isolated from mushrooms and discovered beauveriolide I as a potent anti-aging agent.
