    Nudt1 Overexpression hMTH1-Tg mice express high levels of the hMTH1 hydrolase that degrades 8-oxoGTP and 8-oxoGTP and excludess 8-oxoguanine from both DNA and RNA. hMTH1-overexpresing mice have significantly lower steady-state levels of 8-oxoguanine in both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA of several organs, including the brain. hMTH1 overexpression prevents the age-dependent accumulation of DNA 8-oxoguanine that occurs in the wild-type mice. These lower levels of oxidized guanines are associated with increased longevity and hMTH1-Tg animals live significantly longer than their wild-type littermates [23648059]. Mouse
    THC treatment In male mice supplementation with tetrahydrocurcumin beginning at the age of 13 month increases the mean lifespan by an average of 84 days, i.e. an increase of 11.7% [17516143]. Mouse +11.7
    Drd4 knockout Drd4 knockout mice, when compared with wild-type and heterozygous mice, display a 7 - 9.7% decrease in lifespan, reduced spontaneous locomotor activity, and no lifespan increase when reared in an enriched environment [23283341]. Mouse -7 to -9.7
    Foxm1 overexpression Increased hepatocyte expression in 12-month-old (aged) transgenic mice of Foxm1b alone is sufficient to restore hepatocyte proliferation to levels found in 2-month-old (young) regenerating liver [14647066]. Mouse
    Foxm1 deletion Deletion of Foxm1 causes age-related deterioration in liver regeneration [14647066]. Mouse
    Fgf23 knockout Fgf23 knockouts have a short lifespan and display premature aging-like symptoms including kyphosis, muscle wasting, osteopenia, emphysema, uncoordinated movement, atherosclerosis, and atrophy of the intestinal villi, skin, thymus, and spleen [16436465]. Lack of Fgf23 activities results in extensive premature aging-like features and early mortality of Fgf-23(-/-) mice, while restoring the systemic effects of FGF-23 significantly ameliorates these phenotypes, with the resultant effect being improved growth, restored fertility, and significantly prolonged survival of double mutants [18729070]. Mouse
    Efemp1 knockout Efemp1 knockout mice exhibited an early onset of aging-associated phenotypes including a 20% shorted median lifespan and 30% shorter maximum lifespan, decreased body mass, lordokyphosis, reduced hair growth, and atrophy [17872905]. Mouse +20 +30
    Cdkn1a knockout Deletion of Cdkna1 (alias p21) prolongs the lifespan of telomerase-deficient mice with dysfunctional telomeres and improves the repopulation capacity and self-renewal of hematopoietic stem cells [17143283]. The p21(-/-) strains like the Cdkn1a(tmi/Tyj) exhibits enormous regenerative capacities as it closes ear holes similar to MRL mice [20231440; 21722344]. Mouse
    Cav1 knockout Knockout mice are viable and fertile but exhibit an approximately 50% reduction in lifespan probably due to a combination of pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, and cardiac hypertrophy [14690422]. Mouse -50
    Casp-2 deficiency Loss of caspase-2 resulted in a shortened (10%) maximum lifespan and in enhanced aging-related traits such as impaired hair growth, increased bone loss, and reduced body fat content [17188333]. Mouse -10
    Bub3 and Rae1 haploinsuficiency Haploinsufficiency of Bub3 and Rae1, but not haploinsufficiency of either gene by itself, reduces lifespan by 12% and appears to accelerate aging [16476774]. Mouse -12
    Brca1 deletion Deletion of Brca1 causes senescence in mutant embryos and cultured cells and tumorigenesis and signs of premature aging in adults [12533509]. Brca1 heterozygous seem to have shortened lifespan with 70% of tumor incidence. Lymphoma, but not ovarian and mammary gland tumors, occurs commonly in these animals. After a whole-body exposure to ionizing radiation, Brca1 heterozygous mice have a 3-5-fold higher incidence to ovarian tumors, but not lymphoma, when compared with Brca1(+/+) mice [17420720]. Mouse
    Bax knockout Inactivation of proapoptotic Bax extends fertile potential and minimized age-related health problems, including bone and muscle loss, excess fat deposition, alopecia, cataracts, deafness, increased anxiety, and selective attention deficit. Bax deficiency does not lead to an increase in tumor incidence. Despite the apparently increased quality of life of aging females lacing Bax, there is no significant differences in overall lifespan [17360389]. Mouse
    Atr knockout Deletion of Atr in young adults eliminates 80-90% of proliferating cells and results in several age-related phenotypes accompanied by a depletion of stem and progenitor cells and exhaustion of tissue renewal and homeostatic capacity [18371340]. Atr mutant mice (so called Seckle mice) exhibit high levels of replicative stress during embryogenesis, when proliferation is widespread, but this is reduced to marginal amounts in postnatal life. In spite of this decrease, adult Seckel mice display accelerated aging, which is further aggravated in the absence of p53. Seckel mice die in less than half a year, exhibit pancytopenia, cachexia and signs of premature aging, including hair graying, kyphosis, osteoporosis, accumulation of fat in the bone marrow, decreased density of hair follicles and thinner epidermis [19620979]. Mouse
    Atm knockout Atm-deficient mice are viable, retarded in growth, infertile (male produce no mature sperm and female no gametes), display neurological dysfunction, and exhibit severe defects in T cell maturation while going on to develop thymomas [8917548; 8689683]. The majority of mutant mice rapidly develop thymic lymphomas and die before 4 months of age [8843194]. Cells of Atm(-/-) mice exhibit slow growth also in culture and premature senescence, telomeres are extensively shortened in multiple tissues [8689683]. Mice mutant for Atm and Terc display progressive multi-organ system compromise and features of accelerated aging [12540856]. Mouse
    2-MEA treatment Addition of 1% by weight 2-MEA to the diet of male LAF mice, started shortly after weaning, increases average lifespan by approximately 30%, but does not extend maximum lifespan [5723482; 11795501]. Addition of 2-MEA to the maternal diet of female mice increases the lifespan of male and female offspring by 15 and 8%, respectively [Harman & Eddy, 1979; 11795501]. Addition of 2-MEA of an antioxidant mixture containing ethoxyquin and 2-MEA to the diet of dietary restricted mice shortens lifespan approximately 20% [2394907]. Mouse +30
    Arhgap1 knockout Most Ahrgap1 knockout mice are weak and die during the neonatal period. Animals that survived have a shorter lifespan (median lifespan is 12 months) and show premature aging-like phenotypes, including a reduction in body mass, a loss of subdermal adipose tissue, lordokyphosis, and osteoporosis [17227869]. Mouse
    2-ME treatment Animals fed a diet supplemented with 2-mercaptoethanol (2-ME) exhibit an increased mean and maximum lifespan [6334792]. T-cell-dependent immune responses are higher in the 2-ME-fed mice compared to the controls when the animals are young. The accumulation of fluorescent products of lipid peroxidation damage is also delayed in the lymphocytes of the 2-ME-fed mice and tumor onset and incidence is reduced in these animals [6334792]. Mouse
    Bub1b mutation The median and maximum lifespan of mice with a nonsense mutation 2211insGTTA in BubR1 is significantly reduced. BubR1(+/GTTA) mice develop several aging-related phenotypes at an accelerated rate, including catarct formation, lordokyphosis, skeletal muscle wasting, impaired exercise ability, and fat loss. Further BubR1(+/GTTA) mice develop mild anaplodies and exhibit enhanced growth of carcinogen-induced tumors [Wijshake et al. 2012]. Mouse
    Bub1b overexpression Sustained high-level expression of BubR1 preserves genomic integrity and reduces tumorgenesis (even in the presence of genetic alterations that strongly promote aneuplodization and cancer, such as oncogenic Ras) and extends the lifespan and delays age-related deterioriation and aneuploidy in several tissues [23242215]. BubR1 overabundance exerts its protective effect by correcting mitotic checkpoints defects [23242215]. BubB1 overexpression extends maximum lifespan by 20 - 41% compared to GFP-carrying control transgenic mice [23242215]. Mouse +20 to +41.3
    Diabenol treatment In female NMRI and transgenic HER-2/neu mice supplementation of diabenol with drinking water 5 times a week since the age of 2 months, increases survival and inhibits spontaneous carcinogenesis. In NMRI diabenol does not influence body weight gain dynamics, food and water consumption, but slowed down age-related disturbances in estrous function and increases the lifespan of all and 10% most long-living ones. Diabenol treatment in NMRI mice also inhibits spontaneous tumor incidence (mammary and lymphomas mainly) and increases mammary tumor latency. Diabenol treatment slows down age-related changes in estrous function in HER-2/neu mice, but fails to influence survival and slightly inhibited the incidence and decrease the size of mammary adenocarcinoma metastasis into the lung [15754958]. Mouse
    Metformin treatment Chronic treatment of female transgenic HER-2/neu mice with metformin slightly decreases food consumption but fails to reduce body weight or temperature, slows down age-related rise in blood glucose and triglycerides level, as well as the age-related switch-off of estrous function, prolongs mean lifespan by 8% (p < 0.05), the mean lifespan of last 10% survivors by 13.1% and maximum lifespan by 1 month. Metformin treatment significantly decreases incidence and size of mammary adenocarcinomas and increases the mean latency of the tumors [16125352]. Chronic treatment of female outbred SHR mice with metformin slightly modified food consumption but decreases the body weight after the age of 20 months, slows down the age-related switch-off of estrous function, increases mean lifespan by 37.8% mean lifespan of the last 10% survivor by 20.8%, and maximum lifespan by 2.8 month (+10.3%). Treatment with metformin fails to influence blood estradiol concentration and spontaneous tumor incidence in female SHR mice [18728386]. In female SHR mice, metformin increases lifespan lifespan and postpones tumors when started at young and middle but not at old age. Chronic treatment of female outbred SHR mice with metformin started at the age of 3, 9 or 15 months decreases body temperature and postpones age-related switch-off of estrous function. Treatment with metformin started at the age of 3 months increases mean lifespan by 14% and maximum lifespan by 1 month. Treatment started at the age of 9 months insignificantly increases lifespan by only 6%, whereas the treatment started at the age of 15 months fails to increase lifespan. The mean lifespan of tumor-free mice increases by 21% (started at 3 months), by 7% (started at 9 months) and in contrast is reduced by 13% (started at 15 months). If started at 3 and 9 months, metformin delays the first tumors by 22% and 25%, correspondingly [21386129]. Transgenic FVB/N female mice carrying HER-2/neu mammary cancer gene receiving metformin with drinking water 5 days a week starting from the age of 2 months exhibit a slight reduced food consumption without change in water consumption and dynamics of weight gain. Their mean lifespan increases by 8% in 10% of the long-lived mice it is prolonged y 13.1% and the maximum lifespan is prolonged by 1 month. The total incidence of mammary adenocarcinoma and their multiplicity does not change under the effect of metformin, while the latency of tumor development increases and the mean diameter of tumors decreases [16224592]. Chronic treatment of inbred 129/Sv mice with metformin slightly modifies food consumption but fails to influence the dynamics of body weight, decreases by 13.4% the mean lifespan of make mice and slightly increases the mean lifespan of female mice (by 4.4%). Metformin treatment fails to influence tumor incidence in male 129/Sv mice, decreases by 3.5 times the incidence of malignant neoplasms in female mice while somehowwhat stimulate formation of benign vascualr tumors in the latter [21164223]. Mouse
    Wrn mutation Mice lacking the helicase domain fo the WRN ortholog exhibit many phenotypic features of Werner Syndrom, including a pro-oxidant status and a shorter mean lifespan. Mice with a deletion in the helicase domain [9789047] recapitulates most of the Werner syndrome phenotypes, including an abnormal hyaluronic acid excretion, higher reactive oxygen species levels, dyslipidemia, increased genomic instability, and cancer incidence. Wrn(Dehl/Dehl) mutant mice have a 10 - 15% decrease in their mean lifespan [12707040; 19741171]. Mouse -10 to -15
    C3 treatment Tris-malonic acid derivate of the fullerene C60 molecule (C3) increases the lifespan of Sod2(-/-) mice by 300% [15451059]. Mouse +300
    Ctf1 knockout Absence of Ctf1 is associated with decreased arterial fibrosis, stiffness mad senescence and increased longevity. Ctf1-null mice have a decrease in arterial stiffness and decrease in levels of inflammatory, apoptotic and senescence, whereas telomere-linked and DNA repair proteins as well as antioxidant enzyme activities are increased. The median lifespan of Ctf1-null mice is increased by 5 month (18%) [23172930]. Wild-type and Ctf1-null mice exhibit an increase of senescence markers (p53, Mdm2, p21, and p16) with age but are lower in Ctf1-null mice. Ctf1-null mice have a diminished vascular NFκB signaling, lower inflammation and oxidative stress and reduced senescence. Ctf1-null mice have a 12% increase in body weight, 130% increased adiponectin levels and 51% decreased leptin concentrations [23172930]. Mouse +18
