Work Context

Recently, in Drosophila, we have identified a new small nucleolar RNA (snoRNA) (jouvence) and showed that its mutation (deletion) reduces lifespan, while its overexpression increases it. At the organismal level, the old mutant flies show more neurodegenerative lesions than the controls, while the flies overexpressing jouvence show only few lesions, suggesting a neuroprotection. The mutants present also a hypertrophy of the fat body, suggesting a perturbation of the lipids metabolism. jouvence is required in the epithelium of the gut (1,2). However, recently, a deeper characterization of this genomic locus has shown the presence of two other snoRNAs, revealing rather a cluster of three snoRNAs. The objectives of this project are to determine the role of each snoRNAs, and more particularly the longevity, the neurodegenerative and intestinal lesions, as well as the metabolic perturbations (gut-brain axis) of each snoRNA mutant. the agent will be placed under the hierarchical responsibility of the team leader Mr. Jean-René MARTIN.
