Longevity curves of adult L. longipalpis maintained on diets supplemented with different β-glycosides/aglycones. a Males were fed on esculin and esculetin P = 0.001 (log rank-Mantel Cox); b Males were fed on amygdalin and mandelonitrile P < 0.0001 (log rank-Mantel Cox); c Females were fed on esculin and esculetin P = 0.02 (log rank-Mantel Cox); d Females were fed on amygdalin and mandelonitrile P < 0.0001 (log rank-Mantel Cox). Control flies were fed on a non-supplemented sucrose solution. Significance was considered when P < 0.0001 (log rank-Mantel Cox). Data for male survival curves was obtained from 2 to 5 biological replicates using 20 insects in each cage: sucrose (n = 100), amygdalin (n = 100), esculin (n = 100), mandelonitrile (n = 60) and esculetin (n = 40). Data for females’ survival was obtained from 2 to 4 biological replicates, using 20 insects in each cage: sucrose (n = 80), amygdalin (n = 80), esculin (n = 80), mandelonitrile (n = 80) and esculetin (n = 40). All insects were maintained in a BOD-type incubator under controlled temperature (26 ± 1°C) and humidity (53–70%)
