Effects of carbon dioxide narcosis on ovary activation and gene expression in worker honeybees, Apis mellifera
In an effort to uncover genes associated with ovary activation in honey bee workers, the extent to which eight candidate genes covaried in their expression with experimentally-induced changes in worker reproductive state was examined. Groups of caged, queenless workers narcotized with CO2 on consecutive days early in adult life showed a significantly lower level of ovary activation than did groups of untreated workers. This same experimental treatment, by contrast, is known to accelerate ovary...[Show more]
