Overexpression of fabp (CG6783) throughout the whole body increases mean, median and maximum lifespan by 77, 81 and 13%, increases stress resistant (to paraquat but not starvation), consistently reduces mortality rate across adult ages and reduces the lifespan extension of DR by 12% .
fabp overexpression increases the dFOXO nuclear localization in the fat-body. mRNA levels of dFOXO target genes l(2)efl and 4E-BP in the adult whole bodies increases in response to overexpression of fabp .
Females of the genotype Act-GS-Gal4 > UAS-CG6783 exhibit an increase in median lifespan compared to uninduced control in response to feeding with RU486-containing food from day 3 of adulthood (P < 0.0001). Mean lifespan is extended by 10, while maximum lifespan is decreased by 11% .Mean: +77
