Data from: Evolution of personal and social immunity in the context of parental care

Michelle A. Ziadie, Felicia Ebot-Ojong, Elizabeth C. McKinney & Allen J. Moore
Social immunity moderates the spread of pathogens in social groups and is especially likely in groups structured by genetic relatedness. The extent to which specific immune pathways are used is unknown. Here, we investigate the expression and social role of three functionally separate immune genes (pgrp-sc2, thaumatin, and defensin) during parental care in the beetle Nicrophorus vespilloides. These genes reside in different immune pathways, allowing us to test if specific components of the immune system...
