Expression levels of glutamate and serotonin receptor genes in the brain of different behavioural phenotypes of worker honeybee (Apis mellifera)

Qin, Q. H.; Han, X.; Zhang, S. W.; Zeng, Z. J.


Social insect colonies are known for their efficient system of task specialization. In this study, we analyzed the brain expression level of glutamate and serotonin receptor genes in different behavioural phenotypes of (Apis mellifera) workers by qRT-PCR. The glutamate receptor genes include the ionotropic glutamate receptor (iGluR) genes and metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluRs) genes, and has 9 orthologous genes in honeybee, such as the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) genes, NMDAR1...[Show more]
