This study provides the diversity, phylogenetics and evolution of UGT genes, and potential UGT members and mutations involved in pyrethroid resistance in An. sinensis, and lays an important basis for the better understanding and further research on UGT function in defense against insecticide stress.
Infection experiments showed that An. sinensis Form A from Singapore was susceptible to Thai–Myanmar P. vivax strain, suggesting a potential role as a malaria vector in Singapore.
A high frequency of kdr gene mutations from population of An. sinensis in Henan province was found.
