Potential relevance to dietary restriction and ageing
faah-1 overexpression delays development, increases thermal stress resistance, and was associated with mean and maximum adult lifespan extension by 19 and 35%, respectively, in presence of abundant food but not under two different protocols of DR. Overexpression in pharynx was largely sufficient for this lifespan extension .
