    Cbs RNAi Cbs RNAi partially abrogates increased lifespan by DR, but has no effect on fully fed animals. Cbs upregulation is required for increased lifespan under low-nutrient conditions. Response of male flies to DR is muted in comparison with females [21930912]. Fly
    Fat-body specific Akh knockdown Fat-body specific Akh RNAi results in increased spontaneous activity and a small but significant increase in lifespan upon AL [22768842]. Fly
    CG7834 knockdown Muscle specific RNAi knockdown of CG7834 which reduces its mRNA levels by 25-35%, significantly reduces the DR-dependent lifespan extension. CG7834 RNAi animals exhibit only a 14% increase compared to the 55% lifespan-increase in controls upon DR [22768842]. Fly
    CG4389 knockdown Muscle specific RNAi knockdown of CG489 which reduces its mRNA levels by 25-35%, significantly reduces the DR-dependent lifespan extension. CG4389 RNAi animals exhibit only 20% increase while controls display an lifespan increase by 123% upon DR [22768842]. Fly
    Akh knockdown Knockdown of the adipokinetic hormone (Akh) by RNAi (with an RU486-inducible and ubiquitously expressing Actin 5C-GS Gal4 strain) does not by itself affect lifespan, but significantly inhibits the DR-dependent increase in lifespan across a range of yeast concentrations in both females and males. While control females and males exhibit a 113%/22% increase in lifespan under DR, upon Akh inhibition there was a significant reduction in lifespan extension with DR (52%/5%). Global Akh knockdown reduces starvation resistance by 24% upon DR, but no significant change upon AL. Also Akh RNAi repressed the DR-dependent increase in cold-stress resistance. Fat body and neuronal-specific inhibition of Akh by using RU486-inducible S(1)106-GS-Gal4 and Elav-GS-Gal4 enhancer traps, respectively, does not reduce lifespan extension upon DR. But, muscle-specific inhibition of Akh using RU486-inducible muscle enhancer trap (Mhc-GS-Gal4) reduces the DR-dependent increase in lifespan. While control exhibit a 47.2% lifespan extension, animals with muscle-specific Akh inhibition fails to result in any increase upon DR (i.e. completely blocked the DR lifespan extension). Muscle-specific Akh inhibition diminishes the increase in triglyceride synthesis and breakdown present normally under DR. A significant reduction in lifespan extension also occurs with a noninducible muscle driver (Mhc-Gal4). Controls on DR exhibit significant higher levels of spontaneous activity compared to Akh RNAi-inhibited animals at all ages. Akh inhibition reduces the protective effect of DR on age-related decline in muscle function/activity [22768842]. Fly

    CG5389 RNAi RNAi of complex V subunit CG5389 results in increased mean longevity under standard laboratory food conditions (3% yeast) in males. RNAi started from the development results in a mild lifespan increase in both sexes (3-11% in females and 3-8% in males). Post-developmental RNAi and silencing limited to neurons has variable effects with reduction in lifespan of up to 9% [19747824]. Under rich media conditions CG5389 knockdown throughout development and adulthood increases mean lifespan by 26% and abolished the lifespan extension by DR (started in the adulthood) in males. Suppression of CG5389 only during the adulthood either via RNAi by tub-GS or via oligomycin (a specific inhibitor of complex V) feeding prevents an increase in longevity under DR (started in the adulthood) in males [19968629]. Fly -9 to +26
    l(3)neo18 RNAi Under rich nutritional conditions lifespan of l(3)neo18 (alias CG9762) RNAi knockout animals is indistinguishable from wild-type, while upon DR, lifespan extension is diminished in males and females [19804760]. Fly
