Version 2.77


The natural range of the honeybee is thought to be Africa, Europe and the Middle East for A. mellifera and Japan, India and Indochina for A. cerona. Honeybees have been domesticated and spread throughout the world. Honeybee is the only stinging Hymenoptera that almost always leaves its fluked stinger in the skin of the victim. The venom continues to pump into the victim until the venom sac is exhausted or the stinger removed.

Venoms from honeybees and bumblebees are reported to be highly cross-reactive, which is consistent with the degree of structural similarity in the phospholipases, phospholipase A2. The hyaluronidases and phosphatases also have a high degree of similarity in honeybees and bumblebees. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
