...Heli Havukainen; Jarl Underhaug; Florian Wolschin; Gro Amdam; Øyvind Halskau SUMMARY Vitellogenin (Vg) is an egg-yolk precursor protein in most oviparous species. In honeybee ( Apis mellifera ), the protein (AmVg) also affects social behavior and life-span plasticity. Despite its manifold functions...

... expressed in the absence of significant amounts of vitellogenin. We conclude that drones – like worker bees – have the potential to activate multiple elements of the innate immune response. The differential expression of major haemolymph proteins in drone larvae and adult drones (Figs 1 , 3...

... by secreting the yolk protein precursor vitellogenin (Vg), which suppresses lipophilic juvenile hormone and social foraging behavior. In a two-factorial experiment, we used RNA interference (RNAi)-mediated vg gene knockdown and amino acid nutrient enrichment of hemolymph (blood) to perturb this regulatory...

...Heli Havukainen; Øyvind Halskau; Lars Skjaerven; Bente Smedal; Gro V. Amdam SUMMARY Vitellogenin, an egg-yolk protein precursor common to oviparous animals, is found abundantly in honeybee workers – a caste of helpers that do not usually lay eggs. Instead, honeybee vitellogenin (180 kDa...

... sisters (brood), workers survive for 3-6 weeks. When brood rearing declines, worker lifespan is 20 weeks or longer. Insects can survive unfavorable periods on endogenous stores of protein and lipid. The glyco-lipoprotein vitellogenin extends worker bee lifespan by functioning in free radical defense...

...) and that the maintenance and activity costs of the oviduct are responsible for 18% of the variation in elevated laying RMR. Therefore, other energy-consuming physiological mechanisms must be responsible for the remaining unexplained variation in elevated laying RMR. Yolk precursor[vitellogenin (VTG) and very-low-density...

... protein. E 2 also increased concentrations of zinc in the plasma. The changes in zinc concentration in the bloodstream followed the same time course as vitellogenin(VTG) transport from the liver. However, the high ratio of molar concentrations of zinc to VTG in the bloodstream suggest that VTG may...
