Our results demonstrate that Anopheles polytene chromosomes and whole-genome shotgun assembly render the mapping and characterization of a significant part of heterochromatic scaffolds a possibility.

Human Antibody Response to Anopheles gambiae Saliva: An Immuno-Epidemiological Biomarker to Evaluate the Efficacy of Insecticide-Treated Nets in Malaria Vector Control

Papa M., Anne P., et al.
Reference: 
Am J Trop Med Hyg, Jul 2010; 83: 115 - 121.

This study investigates a potential immunological marker, based on human antibody responses to Anopheles saliva, as a new indicator to evaluate the efficacy of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs).

Open Access | Pyrethroid resistance in Anopheles gambiae leads to increased susceptibility to the entomopathogenic fungi Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana

Malaria Journal 2010, 9:168 (16 June 2010)

The insecticide-resistant mosquito strain was susceptible to both species of fungus indicating that entomopathogenic fungi can be used in resistance management and integrated vector management programmes to target insecticide-resistant mosquitoes.

Open Access | Identification of three single nucleotide polymorphisms in Anopheles gambiae immune signaling genes that are associated with natural Plasmodium falciparum infection

Seven of these eight infection-associated and linked SNPs alter codon frequency or introduce non-synonymous changes that would be predicted to alter protein structure and, hence, function, suggesting that these SNPs could alter immune signaling and responsiveness to parasite infection.

Infection, Genetics and Evolution, Volume 10, Issue 5, July 2010, Pages 620-628

We herein utilized the whole genome sequence information of the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae and inferred evolutionary pattern of the three known IR gene families (CYP, GST and COE).

Open Access | Genome Landscape and Evolutionary Plasticity of Chromosomes in Malaria Mosquitoes

PLoS ONE 5(5): e10592

These results highlight fundamental differences in evolutionary dynamics of the sex chromosome and autosomes and revealed the strong association between characteristics of the genome landscape and rates of chromosomal evolution.

Authentication scheme for routine verification of genetically similar laboratory colonies: a trial with Anopheles gambiae

November 13, 2009 - 11:41 -- Ingeborg van Schayk
Author(s):

Reference: 
BMC Biotechnology 2009, 9:91

We present a method for establishing authentication matrices to routinely distinguish and confirm that laboratory strains have not become physically or genetically mixed through contamination events in the laboratory.
