Effect of high glucose conditions on C. elegans life span. Kaplan-Meier graphs of the fraction of C. elegans alive. Shown are wild-type C. elegans cultured under standard and high glucose conditions. Life span assays were performed as described in Research Designs and Methods. The results are from a representative experiment out of three independent experiments, each including 100 nematodes. Thin
line = standard conditions; bold line = high glucose conditions.
