Chemosensory proteins in the honey bee: Insights from the annotated genome, comparative analyses and expressional profiling

Foret, Sylvain; Wanner, Kevin W; Maleszka, Ryszard


Small chemosensory proteins (CSPs) belong to a conserved, but poorly understood protein family that has been implicated in transporting chemical stimuli within insect sensilla. However, their expression patterns suggest that these molecules are also critical for other functions including early development. Here we used both bioinformatics and experimental approaches to characterize the CSP gene family in a social insect, the Western honey bee Apis mellifera, and then compared its members to...[Show more]
