Smirle, MJ.; Winston, ML., 1988: Detoxifying enzyme activity in worker honey bees: an adaptation for foraging in contaminated ecosystems. The activities of two groups of detoxifying enzymes were assayed throughout the lifetimes of Apis mellifera workers from a single colony. Results for glutathione-S-transferases and for the mixed-function oxidases were similar. With increasing age...

Cohorts of worker honey bees from a single parental hive, cross-fostered into colonies which differed in population and other colony parameters, were assessed for activities of enzymes involved in metabolic detoxication. Activities of glutathione...

The maternity of honey bee drones produced in a colony with an extremely rare behavioral phenotype, in which workers developed functional ovaries and laid large numbers of eggs despite the presence of a queen, was investigated. In normal colonies,...

A series of studies was made to find changes in the fertility of Apis mellifera workers taken from colonies in the period after removal of the queen. Compared with Carniolan bees, Africanized bees showed a more rapid activation of ovaries, a great...

Worker honey bees (Apis mellifera) undergo a process of behavioral maturation leading to their transition from in-hive tasks to foraging--a process which is associated with profound transcriptional changes in the brain. Changes in brain gene expre...

Previous research showed that the presence of older workers causes a delayed onset of foraging in younger individuals in honey bee colonies, but a specific worker inhibitory factor had not yet been identified. Here, we report on the identification...
