E-MTAB-1382 - Transcription profiling by array of three DDT resistant strains of Anopheles gambiae in Cameroon
Released on 24 October 2013, last updated on 6 August 2014
Transcriptome profiling of three DDT resistant strains of Anopheles gambiae in Cameroon (Gare, Messa and Nkolondom- 2 M forms and one S form) compared to the susceptible strain Ngousso (M form) and Kisumu (S form). S-form is distributed across sub-Saharan Africa and breeds mostly in association with rain-dependent pools and temporary puddles. M-form distribution overlaps with that of S-form in West and Central Africa, but the former form is apparently absent east of the Great Rift Valley; it is able to exploit relatively more permanent breeding sites, often closely associated with human activities, such those created by irrigation, rice cultivation and urbanization (Santolamazza et al., 2011).
