Tetrahydrocurcumin extends life span and inhibits the oxidative stress response by regulating the FOXO forkhead transcription factor


Figure 5. THC, but not C, extends life span in Drosophila under normal conditions. The effect of THC and RES (A) was analyzed in a yw background, and C (B) was analyzed in Oregon-R (WT) flies. Life span studies were carried out at 25°C with newly eclosed male (M) or female (F) flies for each longevity experiment (20 per vial; 4 vials were counted). Survivors were transferred to fresh vials containing THC, RES, or C (20—150 μM) every 2—3 days. The statistical analysis of the data is summarized in Table 1.
