Age-dependent transcriptional and epigenomic responses to light exposure in the honey bee brain

Becker, Nils; Kucharski, Robert; Rössler, Wolfgang; Maleszka, Ryszard


Light is a powerful environmental stimulus of special importance in social honey bees that undergo a behavioral transition from in-hive to outdoor foraging duties. Our previous work has shown that light exposure induces structural neuronal plasticity in the mushroom bodies (MBs), a brain center implicated in processing inputs from sensory modalities. Here, we extended these analyses to the molecular level to unravel light-induced transcriptomic and epigenomic changes in the honey bee brain. We...[Show more]
