Congrats to adjunct @BuckInstitute faculty Claudio Hetz. He and other colleagues have cover story in this issue of @NatureCellBio for discovering a cellular mechanism that will be key to combating obesity and diabetes. #livebetterlonger

Cool example of #Antagonisticpleiotropy in the foraging gene (for) of fruit flies. High levels of for-encoded PKG provide an advantage in younger flies at the expense of #longevity, while low PKG flies live longer #livebetterlonger https://t.co/7v0uXNUAtX
