Honeybee protein keeps stem cells youthful

An active protein component of royal jelly helps honeybees create new queens. Stanford researchers have identified a similar protein in mammals, which keeps cultured embryonic stem cells pluripotent.

No single protein determines queen development in honeybees

The proteins in the larval food of honeybees are not specific determinators to make the larvae grow into queens—that includes the protein royalactin, which had been previously claimed to be the 'queen determinator' in a ...

Newly named bacteria help honey bee larvae thrive

Honey bees are under constant pressure from a whole host of stresses—diseases, poor nutrition, sublethal effects of pesticides, and many others. While researchers have been aware for a number of years of a community of ...
