Hemocyte monophenol oxidase activity in mosquitoes exposed to microfilariae of Dirofilaria immitis



Hemocyte monophenol oxidase activity in mosquitoes exposed to microfilariae of Dirofilaria immitis



Journal of Parasitology 75(1): 1-5



Monophenol oxidase (MPO) activity in haemocytes collected from Aedes aegypti Liverpool strain and A. trivittatus intrathoracically inoculated with saline alone, inoculated with D. immitis microfilariae (mf), or from uninoculated mosquitoes was compared using a radiometric tyrosine hydroxylation assay.
