(Top) Transgenic mice (tg) engineered to overexpress the uncoupling protein-2 in the hypocretin neurons have a modest reduction of core body temperature in the dark/active part of the day. (Bottom) Fed ad libitum, these mice have a prolonged median lifespan compared to their wild-type littermates (wt). Work done by Bruno Conti, Ph.D., in the laboratory of Tamas Bartfai, Ph.D.
