Relish regulates expression of antimicrobial peptide genes in the honeybee, Apis mellifera, shown by RNA interference.

Abstract

Relationships of immune genes in adult honeybees (Apis mellifera) were investigated using RNA interference (RNAi). Quantitative RT-PCR was applied to estimate gene expression and the extent of gene silencing. Relish is a transcription factor and forms an important part of the IMD signalling pathway. The expression of the immune gene Relish was significantly… (More)
