- The influence of low concentrations of 10-(2′, 3′-dimethylhynonil-6′)-deciltriphenylphosphonium bromide on the laboratory culture of the crustaceans Ceriodaphnia affinis has been investigated. The increase of average and maximum lifespan, as well as stimulation of heredity, has been found out. Possible mechanisms of this phenomenon have been analyzed.
