Mating-Induced Transcriptome Changes in the Reproductive Tract of Female Aedes aegypti
The Aedes aegypti mosquito is a significant public health threat, as it is the main vector of dengue and chikungunya viruses. Disease control efforts could be enhanced through reproductive manipulation of these vectors. Previous work has revealed a relationship between male seminal fluid proteins transferred to females during mating and female post-mating physiology and behavior. To better unde...متن کامل
The synthesis of juvenile hormone III (JH III) by the isolated corpora allata (CA) of Aedes aegypti adult female was studied using an in vitro radiochemical assay. We dissected the corpora allata-corpora cardiaca (CA-CC) complex attached to a piece of aorta. The complex was left connected to the intact head capsule to facilitate the visualization and transfer of the glands. A linear increase in...متن کامل
Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti is an important dengue vector in tropical and subtropical zones throughout the world. A transcriptome of Ae. aegypti vitellogenic fat bodies is described here. The fat body is a dynamic tissue that participates in multiple biochemical functions of intermediate metabolism. A total of 589 randomly selected cDNAs were assembled into 262 clusters based on their primary seq...متن کامل
Interspecific mating between Louisiana strains of Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti in the field and laboratory.
Interspecific mating between Aedes albopictus males and Ae. aegypti females was detected in the field using mark-release-recapture techniques. By 3 days after the release of virgin Ae. aegypti females into a field site containing only Ae. albopictus, 100% of the captured females were inseminated. Laboratory investigations indicated that male Ae. albopictus were very proficient at inseminating A...متن کامل
Reciprocal and homologous mating experiments between Malaysian Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes were conducted in the laboratory. Two methods were employed, namely an artificial mating technique and a natural cage mating technique. The study demonstrated there exists a strong reproductive isolation between Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus. Insemination occurred in cross-mating experi...متن کامل
