Insights from honeybee (Apis mellifera) and fly (Drosophila melanogaster) nicotinic acetylcholine receptors: from genes to behavioral functions.

Abstract

Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are widely expressed throughout the central nervous system of insects where they supply fast synaptic excitatory transmission and represent a major target for several insecticides. The unbalance is striking between the abundant literature on nAChR sensitivity to insecticides and the rarity of information regarding… (More)
