E-TABM-910 - Transcription profiling by array of honey bee brains to identify distance-responsive genes

Organism
Apis mellifera

Array (1)

Description
Here we show that regions of the honeybee brain involved in visual processing and learning and memory show a genomic response to distance information. Using a method that separates effects of perceived distance from effects of actual distance flown, we found that individuals forced to shift from a short to a perceived long distance to reach a feeding site showed differences in gene expression in the optic lobes and mushroom bodies relative to individuals that continued to perceive flying a short distance.
Experiment types
