Genome-wide analysis of genes related to ovary activation in worker honey bees

Thompson, Graham J; Kucharski, Robert; Maleszka, Ryszard; Oldroyd, Benjamin P


A defining characteristic of eusocial animals is their division of labour into reproductive and nonreproductive specialists. Here, we used a microarray study to identify genes associated with functional sterility in the worker honey bee Apis mellifera. We contrasted gene expression in workers from a functionally sterile wild-type strain with that in a mutant (anarchist) strain selected for high rates of ovary activation. We identified a small set of genes from the brain (n = 7) and from the...[Show more]
