原始语种摘要: Fighting and aggression are important tasks for self-preservation in animals. In honey bees, virgin queens fight against each other for survival in a monogynous colony. Because the virgin queens have higher levels of dopamine (DA) in the brain than do mated queens with low aggressiveness, DA may promote fighting and aggression behaviours of virgin queens. In the present study, we investigated the effect of DA on the fighting and stinging response of honey bee virgin queens. We injected two concentrations (10−3 M and 10−2 M) of DA and the DA receptor blocker flupenthixol into the abdomen of one-day-old virgin queens and observed fighting and stinging responses. DA injection did not affect fighting and stinging. Injections of 10−3 M flupenthixol decreased...
