The fungicide Pristine® inhibits mitochondrial function in vitro but not flight metabolic rates in honey bees.
It is likely that the lack of a strong functional effect of Pristine®-consumption on flight performance and the in vitro function of flight muscle mitochondria results from maintenance of Pristsine® levels in the flight muscles at much lower levels than occur in the food, probably due to metabolism and detoxification.

Regulatory roles of biogenic amines and juvenile hormone in the reproductive behavior of the western tarnished plant bug (Lygus hesperus)
The results suggest the decline in OA observed immediately after mating may promote egg laying, and that male-derived JH may induce an increase in DA that could account for the post-mating loss of sexual receptivity. Expand
Ontogeny of the pupal salivary, hypopharyngeal and mandibular glands and the role of apoptosis during metamorphosis in Apis mellifera
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about concrete mechanical properties such as E-modulus and compressive strength. Expand
