Potential relevance to the human ageing process

Main reason for selection
Entry selected based on evidence directly linking the gene product to ageing in a non-mammalian animal model
Description

A transcription factor of the Fox family, FOXO1 is important in development [802]. It also appears to regulate apoptotic signals.

A homologue of FOXO1A, daf-16, has been associated with ageing in roundworms [628], and overexpression of another homologue, dFOXO, in adult fat body of fruit flies increased longevity in females [1238]. Mice overexpressing FOXO1 in skeletal muscle weighed less than controls and had a reduced skeletal muscle mass, suggesting that FOXO1 could play a role in the age-related decline in muscle mass [1467]. Results from mice also suggest that FOXO1 could be involved in type 2 diabetes [630]. Although at present there is no evidence directly linking FOXO1 to human ageing, it remains a putative player in the human ageing process.
