The expression patterns of bee GLXr-2 and GOX-1. Relative expression levels normalized to the level of the EF1α gene are shown (a, two isoforms of Glxr-2; b, Gox-1). Developmental stages are indicated as follows: L1 (first instar larval stage), P1 (post-capped day 1; the first day when a larva has been sealed in a cell), and A1 (adult day 1; the first day when a bee has emerged from a cell).
