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.

Analysis of population genetic structure of Indian Anopheles culicifacies species A using microsatellite markers

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.

Molecular and epidemiological characterization of Plasmodium vivax recurrent infections in southern Mexico

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.

gSG6-P1 salivary biomarker discriminates micro-geographical heterogeneity of human exposure to Anopheles bites in low and seasonal malaria areas

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.

Phylogeography of the neotropical Anopheles triannulatus complex (Diptera: Culicidae) supports deep structure and complex patterns

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.
