|p53 dominant negative overexpression ||Expression of dominant-negative versions of p53 in adult neurons extends lifespan by 58% in females and by 32% in males and increases resistance to genotoxic stress and resistance to oxidative stress, but not to starvation or heat stress, while not affecting egg production or physical activity. Dominant negative Dmp53 expression cancels out lifespan extension effect of DR, low calorie-food (5% SY). Muscle or fat body specific expression of a dominant negative form of Dmp53 as well as globally lack of Dmp53 decreases lifespan .
Expression of dominant-negative (DN) form of p53 in adult neurons, but not in muscle or fat body cells, extends median lifespan by 19% and maximum lifespan by 8%. The lifespan of dietary-restricted flies is not further extended by simultaneously expressing DN-DMp53 in the nervous system, indicating that a decrease in Dmp53 activity may be part of the DR lifespan-extending effect. Selective expression of DN-Dmp53 in only the 14 insulin-producing cell (IPCs) in the brain extends lifespan to the same extent as expression in all neurons and this lifespan extension is not additive with DR .
