Abstract

Using Drosophila lines pre-selected for adaptive characters, studies have been made on the relationship between the intensity of lipid peroxidation and life span in flies of different genotype, age and physiological condition. It was shown that the intensity of lipid peroxidation depends mainly on different factors (sex, age, virginity) in different lines. No expected negative correlation was found between the level of lipid peroxidation and life span in hybrids between two inbred lines. The intensity of lipid peroxidation was inherited like a dominant character, the dynamics of aging--like a codominant one in females and superdominant in males. Both the level of lipid peroxidation and life span appeared to be sex-dependent characters.
