|A study of cellular proliferation and apoptosis in short- and long-lived honey bees, Apis mellifera
||"Replicative senescence and apoptosis are two cellular processes that have been linked repeatedly to life expectancy in many organisms. However, aging research at the cellular level in the novel model Apis mellifera (honey bees) has been limited. Thi...
|Genomic synteny and comparison of recombination between Apis mellifera (the European honey bee) and Apis florea (the red dwarf honey bee)
||In all sexually reproducing organisms meiotic recombination increases genetic diversity among offspring and creates new genomes through chromosomal reconfiguration. The rate at which recombination occurs varies among and within species. Recombination...
|The genetic architecture of reproductive differences in workers of Africanized and European honey bees, Apis mellifera
||The Western Honeybee (Apis mellifera) displays a special form of social behavior called eusociality. The evolution of its reproductively specialized castes and social behavior from a solitary ancestor may be explained by the reproductive ground plan ...
|Expression levels of immune-genes in developing workers of Apis mellifera in response to reproductive timing and infestation level by the parasitic mite Varroa destructor
||The parasitic mite Varroa destructor is one of the biggest health problems of the Western Honey Bee, Apis mellifera. It feeds from the bees' hemolymph and vectors several honey bee pathogens. V. destructor has also been reported to compromise honey b...
|Investigating the effect of xenobiotics on honeybee intestinal stem cell proliferation
||Over the past decades, the number of managed honeybee colonies in the United States has been declining. One hypothesis proposed to explain the decline is that exposure to xenobiotics might affect bee health without killing the bees directly. The gut ...
|Development and analysis of primary cultures from the midgut of the honey bee, Apis mellifera
||The European honey bee, Apis mellifera, is an important research species of tremendous agricultural and economic importance. However, relatively few in vitro techniques are described for investigating honey bee physiology at the cell...
|Testing the effects of oxidative stress on genomic recombination in the honey bee, Apis mellifera
||It has become increasingly evident that genomic recombination is an evolved trait that varies between and within species. The honey bee has an extremely high genomic recombination rate but the responsible mechanisms have not been studied. Based on th...
