Critical role for protein kinase A in the acquisition of gregarious behavior in the desert locust

Abstract:

The mechanisms that integrate genetic and environmental information to coordinate the expression of complex phenotypes are little understood. We investigated the role of two protein kinases (PKs) in the population density-dependent transition to gregarious behavior that underlies swarm formation in desert locusts: the foraging gene product, a cGMP-dependent PK (PKG) implicated in switching between alternative group-related behaviors in several animal species; and cAMP-dependent PK (PKA), a si...
