In seeking genetic factors that may control the extended behavioural maturation of adult honeybees we found that inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) 3-kinase, a key enzyme in the IP3-mediated signalling cascade, is differentially expressed in brains of naive, newly emerged bees and experienced foragers. DNA sequencing yielded a contig of 21.5 kb spanning the honeybee IP3K locus and a 3′ flanking gene similar to a transcription factor NFR-κ-B. The IP3K locus gives rise to three differentially...[Show more]
