(Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg) The proteins in the larval food of honeybees are not specific determinators to make the larvae grow into queens -- that includes the protein royalactin, which had been previously claimed to be the 'queen determinator' in a highly regarded study in 2011. This is the conclusion of a study carried out by researchers at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and published in the internationally renowned journal Nature.
