Anopheles gambiae

Evaluation of the long-term efficacy of K-Othrine® PolyZone on three surfaces against laboratory reared Anopheles gambiae in semi-field conditions

K-Othrine® PolyZone demonstrated 100% control on metal and cement panels 1 year post application and > 80% control on wood panels up to 6 mo.

State-dependent domicile leaving rates in Anopheles gambiae

January 16, 2018 - 15:52 -- Open Access
Simon P. W. Zappia, Alex M. Chubaty and Bernard D. Roitberg
Malaria Journal 2018 17:25, 12 January 2018

The results confirm that mosquito-leaving behaviour is energy-state dependent, and provide some of the first evidence of state-dependent domicile emigration in An. gambiae, which may play a role in malarial transmission dynamics.

Malaria vectors in the Democratic Republic of the Congo: the mechanisms that confer insecticide resistance in Anopheles gambiae and Anopheles funestus

November 13, 2017 - 15:26 -- Open Access
Luisa Nardini, Richard H. Hunt, Yael L. Dahan-Moss, Nanette Christie, Riann N. Christian, Maureen Coetzee and Lizette L. Koekemoer
Malaria Journal 2017 16:448, 7 November 2017

These data show that high levels of deltamethrin resistance in the main malaria vector species, conferred by enzymatic detoxification, are present in the DRC.

NOT Open Access | Serine protease-related proteins in the malaria mosquito, Anopheles gambiae

September 6, 2017 - 15:10 -- NOT Open Access
Xiaolong Cao, Mansi Gulati, Haobo Jiang
Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Volume 88, September 2017, Pages 48-62

Insect serine proteases (SPs) and serine protease homologs (SPHs) participate in digestion, defense, development, and other physiological processes.

2-Butanone as a carbon dioxide mimic in attractant blends for the Afrotropical malaria mosquitoes Anopheles gambiae and Anopheles funestus

August 30, 2017 - 17:18 -- Open Access
Monicah M. Mburu, Collins K. Mweresa, Philemon Omusula, Alexandra Hiscox, Willem Takken and Wolfgang R. Mukabana
Malaria Journal 2017 16:351, 24 August 2017

These results demonstrate that 2-butanone can serve as a good replacement for CO2 in synthetic blends of attractants designed to attract host-seeking An. gambiae s.l. and An. funestus mosquitoes.

The implementation of long-lasting insecticidal bed nets has differential effects on the genetic structure of the African malaria vectors in the Anopheles gambiae complex in Dielmo, Senegal

August 19, 2017 - 16:07 -- Open Access
Seynabou Sougoufara, Cheikh Sokhna, Nafissatou Diagne, Souleymane Doucouré, Pape MBacké Sembène and Myriam Harry
Malaria Journal 2017 16:337, 15 August 2017

This work demonstrates the complexity of the malaria context and shows the need to study the genetic structure of Anopheles populations to evaluate the effectiveness of vector-control tools and successful management of malaria vector control.

Medical Treatment: 

‘Repel all biters’: an enhanced collection of endophilic Anopheles gambiae and Anopheles arabiensis in CDC light-traps, from the Kagera Region of Tanzania, in the presence of a combination mosquito net impregnated with piperonyl butoxide and permethrin

August 19, 2017 - 16:02 -- Open Access
Corey LeClair, Judith Cronery, J. Derek Charlwood, et al.
Malaria Journal 2017 16:336, 15 August 2017

Mosquitoes entering bedrooms, even those susceptible to pyrethroids, were not killed by contact with an Olyset Plus LLIN.

Comparative physical genome mapping of malaria vectors Anopheles sinensis and Anopheles gambiae

June 6, 2017 - 15:49 -- Open Access
Yun Wei, Biao Cheng, Ai Xia, et al.
Malaria Journal 2017 16:235, 5 June 2017

The physical map will facilitate detailed genomic analysis of An. sinensis and contribute to understanding of the patterns and mechanisms of large-scale genome rearrangements in anopheline mosquitoes.

Evaluation of efficacy of Interceptor® G2, a long-lasting insecticide net coated with a mixture of chlorfenapyr and alpha-cypermethrin, against pyrethroid resistant Anopheles gambiae s.l. in Burkina Faso

May 10, 2017 - 14:32 -- Open Access
Koama Bayili, Severin N’do, Abdoulaye Diabaté, et al.
Malaria Journal 2017 16:190, 8 May 2017

Among all nets trialled, the combination of chlorfenapyr and alpha-cypermethrin on bed nets provided better mortality in phase II after 20 washes.


Presence of susceptible wild strains of Anopheles gambiae in a large industrial palm farm located in Aboisso, South-Eastern of Côte d’Ivoire

April 26, 2017 - 15:33 -- Open Access
Cécile M. A. Sadia-Kacou, Ludovic P. Ahoua Alou, Benjamin G. Koudou, et al.
Malaria Journal 2017 16:157, 20 April 2017

The high mortality rate to deltamethrin, organophosphate and the non-detection of P450 activity in resistance observed in Ehania-V1 appears as a positive outcome for further control strategies as metabolic-based P450 resistance remains major challenge to manage.
