Microarray and Real-Time PCR Analysis of Gene Expression in the Honeybee Brain Following Caffeine Treatment

Kucharski, Robert; Maleszka, Ryszard

Description

To test the idea that caffeine might induce changes in gene expression in the honeybee brain, we contrasted the transcriptional profiles of control and caffeine-treated brains using high-throughput cDNA microarrays. Additional quantitative real-time PCR was performed on a subset of eight transcripts to visualize the temporal changes induced by caffeine. Genes that were significantly upregulated in caffeine-treated brains included those involved in synaptic signaling (GABA:Na symporter, dopamine...[Show more]
