The data corresponds to Figure 1 of the paper and includes death rates of flies (w1118 and JIV) fed with A. keiskei or control.


Forty vials per group (A. keiskei supplemented or control) with 6 males and 6 females per vial were set up with both fly strains. Flies were fed standard banana-molasses food coated with yeast solution that contained 0 mg/mL for control groups and 0.1, 0.2, or 0.4 mg/mL of A. keiskei for treatment groups. Flies were transferred to fresh food vials every other day, with the number of dead flies recorded. Due to a significant increase in lifespan with the 0.4 mg/mL of A. keiskei female flies, this dose was subsequently used in all healthspan (climbing and fecundity) and stress resistance assays.
