Changes in gene DNA methylation and expression networks accompany caste specialization and age-related physiological changes in a social insect

Morandin, Claire; Brendel, Volker P.; Sundstrom, Liselotte; Helantera, Heikki; Mikheyev, Alexander

Description

Social insects provide systems for studying epigenetic regulation of phenotypes, particularly with respect to differentiation of reproductive and worker castes, which typically arise from a common genetic background. The role of gene expression in caste specialization has been extensively studied, but the role of DNA methylation remains controversial. Here, we perform well replicated, integrated analyses of DNA methylation and gene expression in brains of an ant (Formica exsecta) with distinct...[Show more]
