Effects of carbon dioxide narcosis on ovary activation and gene expression in worker honeybees, Apis mellifera

Koywiwattrakul, Preeyada; Thompson, Graham J; Sitthipraneed, Srirporn; Oldroyd, Benjamin P; Maleszka, Ryszard


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]
