     Certainly one of the most fascinating findings relating to aging has
been that mutation of certain genes in Caenorhabditis doubles life span,
and mutation of two of the genes lengthens life 4-6 fold.  I heard
recently that someone had found a similar DNA sequence to at least one of
these genes in humans, but I can't confirm that it occurred.  If you know
whether this has been found, I would appreciate hearing of it.  Thank you.
