Gustatory Perception and Fat Body Energy Metabolism Are Jointly Affected by Vitellogenin and Juvenile Hormone in Honey Bees

Gene knockdown effect on hemolymph glucose and trehalose.

Hemolymph titers of (A) glucose, (B) trehalose and (C) combined glucose and trehalose. The titers in vg or usp single gene knockdown bees did not change compared to gfp control bees. In double knockdown bees (vg/usp), the glucose titer was significantly increased (Mean ± s.e., n = 21–23, p<0.05), the trehalose titer showed a tentative increase (p = 0.0566) and the cumulative titer of glucose and trehalose was significantly elevated (p<0.05).
