A Search for Parent-of-Origin Effects on Honey Bee Gene Expression.

Kocher SD, Tsuruda JM, Gibson JD, Emore CM, Arechavaleta-Velasco ME, Queller DC, Strassmann JE, Grozinger CM, Gribskov MR, San Miguel P, Westerman R, Hunt GJ - G3 (Bethesda) (2015)

Bottom Line: We found 46 transcripts with significant parent-of-origin effects on gene expression, many of which overexpressed the maternal allele.The nonreciprocal effects could be largely driven by hybrid incompatibility between these strains.Future work will help to determine if these are indeed parent-of-origin effects that can modulate inclusive fitness benefits.

Numbers of transcripts with parentally biased and lineage-biased gene expression. The final row includes the total numbers of tested transcripts and the number of SNPs included in each test are in parentheses. In all cases, there were significantly more maternally biased than paternally biased transcripts (Storer-Kim tests, P < 0.001) and more European-biased than Africanized-biased transcripts (Storer-Kim tests, P < 0.001). In total, there were 46 transcripts with parent-of-origin effects. Note that some of the transcripts were significant in more than one sampling group (see Table 1).

fig2: Numbers of transcripts with parentally biased and lineage-biased gene expression. The final row includes the total numbers of tested transcripts and the number of SNPs included in each test are in parentheses. In all cases, there were significantly more maternally biased than paternally biased transcripts (Storer-Kim tests, P < 0.001) and more European-biased than Africanized-biased transcripts (Storer-Kim tests, P < 0.001). In total, there were 46 transcripts with parent-of-origin effects. Note that some of the transcripts were significant in more than one sampling group (see Table 1).

Mentions: We identified a total of 46 transcripts with significant parent-of-origin effects on expression (Figure 2, Figure 3, Figure S1, Figure S2) corresponding to 1–2% of the tested transcripts in each sample group (larvae, adults, individual brains). In all sample groups examined, there were significantly more maternally biased than paternally biased transcripts (Figure 2) (Storer-Kim tests, P < 0.001). These transcripts are distributed throughout the genome and do not appear to form any distinct clusters.
