Processing of sting pheromone and its components in the antennal lobe of the worker honeybee
In the honeybee Apis mellifera, a sting pheromone produced by sting glands plays an important role in coordinating defensive behavior. This pheromone is a blend constituted by several components. Little is known about the neural substrates underlying sting pheromone processing in the bee brain. Here, we investigated the neural activity elicited by eight components (five acetates and three alcohols) of the sting pheromone, and by real bee stings at the level of the antennal lobe (AL) of worker...[Show more]
