We have previously demonstrated the involvement of carbonic anhydrase (CA) in larval mosquito midgut physiology. In this study, we used Hansson's histochemistry to examine the distribution of the enzyme in the midgut of Aedes aegypti, Aedes albopictus, Culex quinquefasciatus, Culex nigripalpus, Ochlerotatus taeniorhynchus, Anopheles albimanus and Anopheles(More)
We have previously demonstrated the involvement of carbonic anhydrase (CA) in the alkalization mechanism of the Aedes aegypti larval midgut. In this study, we used Hansson's histochemistry to examine the distribution of the enzyme in the midgut of six different species of mosquito larvae (Aedes aegypti, Aedes albopictus, Culex quinquefasciatus, Culex(More)
To test for environmental persistence in order to determine the potential of carbonic anhydrase inhibitors as larvicides, the decomposition and degradation of samples containing methazolamide (MTZ) and acetazolamide (ACZ) in aqueous solution were monitored under different conditions. Additionally, nontarget species impact was assessed in an acute toxicity(More)
The main objective of the present work was to establish and maintain a colony of Ochlerotatus taeniorhynchus, Riohacha strain, under laboratory conditions and to study its life cycle. The colony's insectary was established from adult male and female mosquitoes collected from peripheral neighborhoods of Riohacha, Colombia. Environmental conditions(More)
