Parental age effect on the longevity and healthspan in Drosophila melanogaster and Caenorhabditis elegans


Figure 3. Effect of parental age on the fecundity of C. elegans progeny. (A, B) Total progeny of cross-fertilized hermaphrodites produced between 36 to 156 h of adulthood (hermaphrodites were sorted based on fluorescent sperm transfer from males after a 12 h copulation window). Mean ± SD, n > 30. (C, D) Total progeny of self-fertilized hermaphrodites produced between 0 to 156 h of adulthood. Mean ± SD, n > 18. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.001 by one-way ANOVA (Kruskal-Wallis test).
