The immune system in Bombus terrestris. The B. terrestris transcriptome data were screened for the presence of components of the major immune signalling pathways using reciprocal tBLASTx searches between BT_transcriptome_v2 and A. mellifera sequences. Some components had stage limited expression, as indicated by the coloured circles. Pathway components also identified by Sadd et al. [31] are indicated by star symbols.
