Abstract

Usutu virus (USUV), one of the most neglected Old World encephalitic flaviviruses, causes epizootics among wild and captive birds and sporadic infection in humans. The dynamics of USUV spread and evolution in its natural hosts are unknown. Here, we present the phylogeny and evolutionary history of...

Abstract

In vitro studies of sexual blood stages of the most fatal malaria species, Plasmodium falciparum, have revealed key processes by which gametocytes develop and transmit infection from humans to anopheline mosquitoes. However, most malaria cases outside sub-Saharan Africa are caused by other ...

Abstract

Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV), a member of the family Bunyaviridae, genus Phlebovirus, is the causative agent of Rift Valley fever (RVF), a mosquito-borne disease of ruminant animals and humans. The generation of a large sequence database has facilitated studies of the evolution and spread of the...

Abstract

The 6 Afrotropical species of mosquitoes comprising the A. gambiae complex include the most efficient vectors of malaria in the world, as well as a nonvector species. The accepted interpretation of evolutionary relationships among these species is based on chromosomal inversions and suggests that...

Abstract

In the mosquito Culex pipiens, over-production of esterases is a common insecticide resistance mechanism. Different alleles at the esterase A and B loci are known to occur in natural populations, as shown by enzyme electrophoresis and RFLP studies on the esterase B locus. The authors analysed the...

Abstract

Cytogenetic analysis of a sample of the A. gambiae complex from dwellings in a village (Gagaré) in Gourma province, Burkina-Faso, collected in mid-September 1984, showed that A. arabiensis and A. gambiae were sympatric in the area. No hybrid between these 2 sibling species was observed among 229...

Abstract

The structure of the rDNA repeating unit of A. gambiae was determined by restriction endonuclease mapping and hybridization analyses on 4 independent clones obtained from a genomic library of a colony (G3) from The Gambia. rDNA gene coding sequences are conserved, but much intragenomic and...

Abstract

" In the classification, of Haemocytozoa or Haemosporidia the greatest confusion still exists and it is thus desirable to revise their classification. The confusion arising in connection with the systematic position of these protozoa is undoubtedly due to the very strict parasitism of these...
