differential distribution of peridomestic aedes mosquitoes on grand bahama island.aedes aegypti, on grand bahama island, is restricted to certain western towns, whereas a. bahamensis is more generally distributed. during 14 years of observation, the range of a. aegypti has extended 8 km and now includes the major tourist centre. relocation of discarded automobile tires is an important mechanism for such spread. we suggest that the presence of a. bahamensis restrains colonization by a. aegypti, and thereby helps to protect human populations from a. aegypti-borne disease.1979555063

the control of the diuresis following a blood meal in females of the yellow fever mosquito aedes aegypti (l).control of post-feeding diuresis in females of the mosquito aëdes aegypti has been studied by means of a weighing technique and simple surgical procedures. the primary controlling factor is (as in the larva) a nervous feedback mechanism and not an increased production of diuretic hormone. as the mosquito ingests blood, sensory information from the distending abdomen reaches the mid gut via the nerve cord, brain and stomatogastric system. this information probably inhibits retroperistaltic moveme ...1977908912
the fate of ingested brugia pahangi microfilariae in susceptible and refractory strains of culex pipiens and aedes aegypti.the uptake and migration of microfilariae of brugia pahangi in susceptible and refractory culex pipiens and aedes aegypti were compared after membrane-feeding the mosquitoes on infected blood and anti-coagulant. there was no difference between the strains within each species in the pattern of migration, but in c pipiens only 24% of the microfilariae reached the thorax whereas in a. aegypti 73-6% were successful. in both susceptible strains the filariae in the thorax developed normally to maturit ...1977921369

a deoxyribonucleic acid-replication intermediate in the growing previous experiments on growth and aging in the yellow-fever mosquito, aedes aegypti, a low mol. wt. (500000) dna species was found in the supernatant fraction after ultracentrifugation of homogenates of rapidly-growing larvae. this dna species, "sdna", constituted 30-40% of total dna in 2-4-day-old larvae, but was less than 5% in older larvae, pupae and adults. we have now isolated and characterized sdna and initiated experiments to determine its metabolic role. isolated sdna has the same ph ...0938459
the biosynthesis of deoxyribonucleic acid during the life-span of the mosquito.previous results from this laboratory [kao et al, (1976) biochem. j. 154, 471-480] demonstrated that a low-molecular-weight dna species, "sdna", present in high concentrations during rapid larval growth of the yellow-fever mosquito, aedes aegypti, may be an intermediate in dna replication. we have now determined the life-span profiles of synthetic rates and the steady-state contents of sdna and total dna by radiometric and biochemical procedures and by using mosquitoes grown and maintained under ...0938460
