Effect of diet on transcript levels of genes encoding enzymes of the JH biosynthesis pathway and expressed in CA-CC complexes.

<p>Newly-emerged workers were kept for 7 days in cages and fed on a protein-enriched diet (beebread plus syrup), or on a pure carbohydrate diet (syrup only). Each bar represents the mean ± SEM of three independent samples, each consisting of eight CA-CC pairs. (**) t-test; p≤0.001; (*) t-test; p≤0.05.</p>
