Validation of selected lncRNAs and mRNAs by using quantitative PCR. The relative expression levels of TCONS_00356023, TCONS_00357367, HR38, dop1, Kr-h1 in the heads of nurses and foragers from typical colonies (a); the relative expression levels of TCONS_00356023, TCONS_00357367, HR38, dop1, Kr-h1 in the heads of normal nurses and precocious foragers from single-cohort colonies (b); the relative expression levels of TCONS_00356023, TCONS_00357367, HR38, dop1, Kr-h1 in the heads of overaged nurses and normal-aged foragers from single-cohort colonies (c); the relative expression level of TCONS_00159909 in the heads of nurses and foragers from both typical colonies and single-cohort colonies. TCONS_00159909 expression was presented in a single figure, as its expression level was too low to be shown in the same plot as the other two lncRNAs (d). Blue represents nurses, and white represents foragers. Data were normalized to the housekeeping gene β-actin and are shown as the mean ± standard error, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01
