Daily protein synthesis in the pars intercerebralis and corpora allata ofApis mellifica L. with and without training to a foraging schedule

The rate of protein synthesis by the neurosecretory cells in the pars intercerebralis and in the corpora allata was determined by autoradiography. Bees that forage throughout the day display a daily rhythm in that rate; the synthesis curve could be shifted considerably in each of two different training experiments. The total amount of protein synthesized… CONTINUE READING
