Pyrethroid and DDT cross‐resistance in Aedes aegypti is correlated with novel mutations in the voltage‐gated sodium channel gene
Samples of the dengue vector mosquito Aedes aegypti (L.) (Diptera: Culicidae) were collected from 13 localities between 1995 and 1998. Two laboratory strains, Bora (French Polynesia) and AEAE, wereExpand

Field-Caught Permethrin-Resistant Anopheles gambiae Overexpress CYP6P3, a P450 That Metabolises Pyrethroids
Insects exposed to pesticides undergo strong natural selection and have developed various adaptive mechanisms to survive. Resistance to pyrethroid insecticides in the malaria vector Anopheles gambiaeExpand

High Level of Pyrethroid Resistance in an Anopheles funestus Population of the Chokwe District in Mozambique
Background Although Anopheles funestus is difficult to rear, it is crucial to analyse field populations of this malaria vector in order to successfully characterise mechanisms of insecticideExpand

Pyrethroid Resistance in an Anopheles funestus Population from Uganda
Background The susceptibility status of Anopheles funestus to insecticides remains largely unknown in most parts of Africa because of the difficulty in rearing field-caught mosquitoes of this malariaExpand

Variation in courtship signals and hybridization between geographically definable populations of the rice Brown planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (Stål)
Populations of Nilaparvata lugens from 18 geographically defined and widely distributed regions in Asia and Australasia were maintained in the laboratory on growing rice plants. Crosses between someExpand

Identification and distribution of a GABA receptor mutation conferring dieldrin resistance in the malaria vector Anopheles funestus in Africa
Growing problems of pyrethroid resistance in Anopheles funestus have intensified efforts to identify alternative insecticides. Many agrochemicals target the GABA receptors, but cross-resistance fromExpand

Variation in hostplant relations and courtship signals of weed‐associated populations of the brown planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (Stål), from Australia and Asia: a test of the recognition species
Populations of the morphological species, Nilaparvata lugens (Stal), were found to breed and feed on the grass, Leersia hexandra Schwartz, at six sites in Queensland, Australia. They differ fromExpand

Comprehensive risk reduction in patients with atrial fibrillation: emerging diagnostic and therapeutic options--a report from the 3rd Atrial Fibrillation Competence NETwork/European Heart Rhythm
While management of atrial fibrillation (AF) patients is improved by guideline-conform application of anticoagulant therapy, rate control, rhythm control, and therapy of accompanying heart disease,Expand

Mapping a Quantitative Trait Locus (QTL) conferring pyrethroid resistance in the African malaria vector Anopheles funestus
BackgroundPyrethroid resistance in Anopheles funestus populations has led to an increase in malaria transmission in southern Africa. Resistance has been attributed to elevated activities ofExpand
