From: Transcriptome analysis reveals mechanisms of geroprotective effects of fucoxanthin in Drosophila

Variant Sex M (days) dM (%) 90% (days) d90% (%) MRDT (days) dMRDT (%) n
No treatment (control) males 47   68   9.25   319

  1. M - Median lifespan; 90% - age of 90% mortality (maximum lifespan); MRDT - Mortality rate doubling time; dM, d90%, dMRDT - Differences between median lifespan, age of 90% mortality, and MRDT of control and experimental flies, respectively; n - Number of flies; *p < 0.001, Gehan-Breslow-Wilcoxon test
