Detection of G119S ace-1 R mutation in field-collected Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes using allele-specific loop-mediated isothermal amplification (AS-LAMP) method

December 2, 2015 - 16:16 -- Open Access
Athanase Badolo, Hironori Bando, Alphonse Traoré, Mami Ko-ketsu, Wamdaogo Guelbeogo, Hirotaka Kanuka, Hilary Ranson, N’Falé Sagnon, Shinya Fukumoto
Malaria Journal 2015, 14:477 (1 December 2015)

The AS-LAMP method could detect the ace-1 R mutation within 60 min, which is faster than conventional PCR-RFLP.

Remarkable repellency of Ligusticum sinense (Umbelliferae), a herbal alternative against laboratory populations of Anopheles minimus and Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae)

August 8, 2015 - 10:48 -- Open Access
Rukpong Sanghong, Anuluck Junkum, Benjawan Pitasawat, et al.
Malaria Journal 2015, 14:307 (7 August 2015)

LHE with proven repellent efficacy, no side effects on the skin, and a rather stable state when kept in varied conditions is considered to be a potential candidate for developing a new natural alternative to DEET, or an additional weapon for integrated vector control when used together with other chemicals/measures.

Unravelling the Evolution of the Allatostatin-Type A, KISS and Galanin Peptide-Receptor Gene Families in Bilaterians: Insights from Anopheles Mosquitoes

July 15, 2015 - 10:12 -- Open Access
Rute C. Felix, Marlene Trindade, Isa R. P. Pires, Vera G. Fonseca, Rute S. Martins, Henrique Silveira, Deborah M. Power, João C. R. Cardoso
PLoS ONE 10(7): e0130347

Allatostatin type A receptors (AST-ARs) are a group of G-protein coupled receptors activated by members of the FGL-amide (AST-A) peptide family that inhibit food intake and development in arthropods.

NOT Open Access | The Anopheles-midgut APN1 structure reveals a new malaria transmission-blocking vaccine epitope

July 8, 2015 - 10:09 -- NOT Open Access
Sarah C Atkinson, Jennifer S Armistead, Natalie A Borg, et al.
Nature Structural & Molecular Biology (2015)

Mosquito-based malaria transmission–blocking vaccines (mTBVs) target midgut-surface antigens of the Plasmodium parasite's obligate vector, the Anopheles mosquito.

Evaluation of ICON Maxx, a long-lasting treatment kit for mosquito nets: experimental hut trials against anopheline mosquitoes in Tanzania

June 2, 2015 - 08:40 -- Open Access
Patrick Tungu, Robert Malima, Frank Mosha, Issa Lyimo, Caroline Maxwell, Harparkash Kaur, William Kisinza, Stephen Magesa, Matthew Kirby, Mark Rowland
Malaria Journal 2015, 14:225 (30 May 2015)

Nets treated with ICON Maxx and washed 20 times met the approval criteria set by WHOPES for Phase II trials in terms of mortality and blood-feeding inhibition.

Cyclic GMP Balance Is Critical for Malaria Parasite Transmission from the Mosquito to the Mammalian Host

May 4, 2015 - 08:31 -- Open Access
Viswanathan Lakshmanan, Matthew E. Fishbaugher, Bob Morrison, Michael Baldwin, Michael Macarulay, Ashley M. Vaughan, Sebastian A. Mikolajczak, and Stefan H. I. Kappe
mBio.02330-14, 17 March 2015 mBio vol. 6 no. 2 e02330-14

Transmission of malaria occurs during Anopheles mosquito vector blood meals, when Plasmodium sporozoites that have invaded the mosquito salivary glands are delivered to the mammalian host.

Outdoor biting by Anopheles mosquitoes on Bioko Island does not currently impact on malaria control

April 24, 2015 - 07:08 -- Open Access
John Bradley, Jo Lines, Godwin Fuseini, Christopher Schwabe, Feliciano Monti, Michel Slotman, Daniel Vargas, Guillermo Garcia, Dianna Hergott, Immo Kleinschmidt
Malaria Journal 2015, 14:170 (21 April 2015)

Malaria vector mosquitoes in Bioko do bite humans outdoors, and this has the potential to reduce the effectiveness of vector control.


Bacterial Diversity Associated with Wild Caught Anopheles Mosquitoes from Dak Nong Province, Vietnam Using Culture and DNA Fingerprint

March 17, 2015 - 13:10 -- Open Access
Chung Thuy Ngo, Fabien Aujoulat, Francisco Veas, Estelle Jumas-Bilak, Sylvie Manguin
PLoS ONE 10(3): e0118634

Sampled Anopheles species from central-south Vietnam contained a diverse bacterial microbiota that needs to be investigated further in order to develop new malaria control approaches.


Mosquito magnet® liberty plus trap baited with octenol confirmed best candidate for Anopheles surveillance and proved promising in predicting risk of malaria transmission in French Guiana

October 29, 2014 - 13:30 -- Open Access
Samuel B Vezenegho, Antoine Adde, Pascal Gaborit, Romuald Carinci, Jean Issaly, Vincent Pommier de Santi, Isabelle Dusfour, Sébastien Briolant, Romain Girod
Malaria Journal 2014, 13:384 (26 September 2014)

Though MMoct and MMlur performed well in sampling An. darlingi, MMoct captured more species and, therefore, would be useful for surveillance.


Seasonal abundance of Anopheles mosquitoes and their association with meteorological factors and malaria incidence in Bangladesh

September 23, 2014 - 17:12 -- Open Access
Bashar K, Tuno N
Parasites & Vectors 2014, 7 :442 (18 September 2014)

Our study demonstrates that the nature of relationship between malaria vector and climatic variables were multifaceted. Detailed studies of vector bionomics, continuous monitoring and malaria transmission dynamics is essential for predicting disease outbreaks and vector control in the region.
