Effects of the mitochondria-targeted antioxidant SkQ1 on lifespan of rodents


Figure 7. SkQ1 (50 nmol/kg per day) increases the lifespan of a wild rodent, the mole-vole Ellobius talpinus, under simulated natural conditions. A total of 32 animals were used in the experiments. A, C, males; B, D, females. Statistical significance p < 0.05 (SkQ1 versus control). Figures near the SkQ1 curves (C, D), duration of the SkQ1 treatment (days). Age of animals (C, D) was determined post mortem by measuring the parameters of the root of the 1st mandibular molar.
