Gene silencing through RNAi and antisense Vivo-Morpholino increases the efficacy of pyrethroids on larvae of Anopheles stephensi.

Agata Negri, Marco Ferrari, Riccardo Nodari, Edoardo Coppa, Valentina Mastrantonio, Sergio Zanzani, Daniele Porretta, Claudio Bandi, Sandra Urbanelli, Sara Epis,

BACKGROUND:Insecticides are still at the core of insect pest and vector control programmes. Several lines of evidence indicate that ABC transporters are involved in detoxification processes against insecticides, including permethrin and other pyrethroids. In particular, the ABCG4 gene, a member of the G subfamily, has consistently been shown to be ... Read more >>

Insecticide Exposure Triggers a Modulated Expression of ABC Transporter Genes in Larvae of Anopheles gambiae s.s.

Valentina Mastrantonio, Marco Ferrari, Agata Negri, Tommaso Sturmo, Guido Favia, Daniele Porretta, Sara Epis, Sandra Urbanelli,

Insecticides remain a main tool for the control of arthropod vectors. The urgency to prevent the insurgence of insecticide resistance and the perspective to find new target sites, for the development of novel molecules, are fuelling the study of the molecular mechanisms involved in insect defence against xenobiotic compounds. In ... Read more >>

Adenosine Triphosphate-Binding Cassette Transporters Are Not Involved In the Detoxification of Azadirachta indica Extracts In Anopheles stephensi Larvae.

Marco Ferrari, Agata Negri, Claudia Romeo, Ilaria Varotto Boccazzi, Riccardo Nodari, Annette Habluetzel, Giorgio Molteni, Yolanda Corbett,

Detoxifying pathways of mosquitoes against the neem (Azadirachta indica) extracts are still unclear. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of adenosine triphosphate-binding cassette (ABC) transporters in this process in Anopheles stephensi, one of the main malaria vectors in southern Asia. Third-stage larvae of An. stephensi ... Read more >>

Patterns of Midichloria infection in avian-borne African ticks and their trans-Saharan migratory hosts.

Irene Di Lecce, Chiara Bazzocchi, Jacopo G Cecere, Sara Epis, Davide Sassera, Barbara M Villani, Gaia Bazzi, Agata Negri, Nicola Saino, Fernando Spina, Claudio Bandi, Diego Rubolini,

BACKGROUND:Ticks are obligate haematophagous ectoparasites of vertebrates and frequently parasitize avian species that can carry them across continents during their long-distance migrations. Ticks may have detrimental effects on the health state of their avian hosts, which can be either directly caused by blood-draining or mediated by microbial pathogens transmitted during ...

Gene expression modulation of ABC transporter genes in response to permethrin in adults of the mosquito malaria vector Anopheles stephensi.

Valentina Mastrantonio, Marco Ferrari, Sara Epis, Agata Negri, Giulia Scuccimarra, Matteo Montagna, Guido Favia, Daniele Porretta, Sandra Urbanelli, Claudio Bandi,

Living organisms have evolved an array of genes coding for detoxifying enzymes and efflux protein pumps, to cope with endogenous and xenobiotic toxic compounds. The study of the genes activated during toxic exposure is relevant to the area of arthropod vector control, since these genes are one of the targets ... Read more >>
