The influence of the gene sb in Culex pipiens on the development of sub-periodic Brugia malayi and Wuchereria bancrofti



The influence of the gene sb in Culex pipiens on the development of sub-periodic Brugia malayi and Wuchereria bancrofti



Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 71(4): 487-490



The gene sb (filarial susceptibility, Brugia pahangi) in Culex pipiens controls the development also of sub-periodic B. malayi, but has no influence on the development of periodic Wuchereria bancrofti (Ceylon strain). C.p. fatigans (Kuala Lumpur), C.p. molestus (London) and Aedes aegypti (re fm strain) were all susceptible to the Ceylon strain of W. bancrofti, with susceptibility rate of 90.3%, 92.9% and 52.6% respectively. However, a low proportion of the larvae in A. aegypti developed to maturity, and this mosquito is less well adapted to W. bancrofti than is C. pipiens.
