In the present study the correlations between HLA profiles, human skin volatiles and human attractiveness to the malaria mosquito Anopheles gambiae Giles sensu stricto were examined.
This is the first and successful attempt to test the microsatellite markers developed for population genetic analysis of An. culicifacies A. Host feeding and breeding habits of species A suggest that factors other than ecological and geographical barriers were responsible for the genetic differentiation that has been observed between the populations.
Symptomatic patients with more than one P. vivax infection were followed up, and blood samples were collected from primary and recurrent infections. DNA extracted from infected blood samples was analyzed for restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) in genes encoding csp and msp3alpha, as well as size variation in seven microsatellites.
Our study corroborates the existence of An. albertoi, An. CP Form and An. strodei in the An. strodei subgroup and identifies four species under An. arthuri informally named A-D herein.
In this paper, we report the effects of a mega hydropower dam on P. falciparum malaria incidence in Ethiopia.
Altogether 9,692 An. funestus and 1,670 An. gambiae s.l. were collected.
In this study, we investigated whether the human antibody (Ab) response to Anopheles salivary gSG6-P1 peptide, known as a biomarker of Anopheles exposure, could be a sensitive and reliable tool for discriminating human exposure to Anopheles bites in area of low and seasonal malaria transmission.
Malaria parasite transmission depends upon the successful development of Plasmodium in its Anopheles mosquito vector.
Overall, the model has a realistic representation of seasonal and year to year variability in mosquito densities in Ethiopia.
Each data set analyzed separately yielded a different topology but none provided evidence for the separation of An. halophylus and An. triannulatus C, consistent with the hypothesis that the two are undergoing incipient speciation.
