Abstract

The identification of predictive markers of life span would help to unravel the underlying mechanisms influencing ageing and longevity. For this aim, 30 variables including immune functions, inflammatory-oxidative stress state and behavioural characteristics were investigated in ICR-CD1 female mice at the adult age (N = 38). Mice were monitored individually until they died and individual life spans were registered. Multiple linear regression was carried out to construct an Immunity model (adjusted R2 = 75.8%) comprising Macrophage chemotaxis and phagocytosis and Lymphoproliferation capacity, a Redox model (adjusted R2 = 84.4%) involving Reduced Glutathione and Malondialdehyde concentrations and Glutathione Peroxidase activity and a Behavioural model (adjusted R2 = 79.8%) comprising Internal Locomotion and Time spent in open arms indices. In addition, a Combined model (adjusted R2 = 92.4%) and an Immunity-Redox model (adjusted R2 = 88.7%) were also constructed by combining the above-mentioned selected variables. The models were also cross-validated using two different sets of female mice (N = 30; N = 40). Correlation between predicted and observed life span was 0.849 (P < 0.000) for the Immunity model, 0.691 (P < 0.000) for the Redox, 0.662 (P < 0.000) for the Behavioural and 0.840 (P < 0.000) for the Immunity-Redox model. Thus, these results provide a new perspective on the use of immune function, redox and behavioural markers as prognostic tools in ageing research.
