Development of a multiplex PCR assay for the identification of eight species members of the Thai Hyrcanus Group (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
This study first developed a simple and robust multiplex PCR assay, based on second internal transcribed spacer sequences of ribosomal DNA, for differentiating the eight species members of the Thai Hyrcanus Group.
Scanning electron microscopy of antennal sensilla of the eight Anopheles species of the Hyrcanus Group (Diptera: Culicidae) in Thailand
TLDR
In order to focus intensively on the exact function of antennal sensilla, further electrophysiological study is needed in understanding their significant role in mosquito behavior, especially when these insects seek hosts for transmitting pathogens to humans.
Susceptibility of eight species members in the Anopheles hyrcanus group to nocturnally subperiodic Brugia malayi
TLDR
Two refractory mechanisms; direct toxicity and/or melanotic encapsulation against filarial larval were involved in the refractoriness of development in the thoracic muscles of the mosquito.
Characterization of IgE-binding proteins in the salivary glands of Simulium nigrogilvum (Diptera: Simuliidae)
TLDR
The relevance of the identified protein bands as allergens needs to be confirmed by using pure recombinant proteins, either in the in vivo skin prick test or in vitro detection of the specific IgE in the serum samples of allergic subjects.
Scanning electron microscopy of Anopheles hyrcanus group (Diptera: Culicidae) eggs in Thailand and an ultrastructural key for species identification
TLDR
Comparisons of the egg structure among the eight species showed that the eggs differed with respect to the following characteristics: the deck—complete, split and incomplete decks found together within an egg batch/An.
Comparative Studies on the Stenogamous and Eurygamous Behavior of Eight Anopheles Species of the Hyrcanus Group (Diptera: Culicidae) in Thailand
TLDR
The results obtained from comparative measurements of specific characters in adult females (maxillary palpomere and antennal sensilla characters) and males (wing and genitalia) indicate those characters might influence the mating success of An.
Evidence to Support a Conspecific Nature of Allopatric Cytological Races of Anopheles nitidus (Diptera: Culicidae) in Thailand
TLDR
The results suggest that the forms are conspecific, and An .
Cytogenetic, crossing and molecular evidence of two cytological forms of Anopheles argyropus and three cytological forms of Anopheles pursati (Diptera: Culicidae) in Thailand.
TLDR
The conspecific natures of these karyotypic forms in both species were further supported by very low intraspecific sequence variations and indicated genetic compatibility in yielding viable progenies and synaptic salivary gland polytene chromosomes through F2-generations.
