Anopheles albitarsis eggs: ultrastructural analysis of chorion layers after permeabilization.

Abstract

Construction of transgenic Anopheles mosquitoes refractory to Plasmodium requires knowledge of mosquito developmental biology. In order to study Anopheles embryology the removal or, alternatively, the permeabilization of the melanized and sclerotized egg chorion were attempted. The protocol classically used for chorion removal of Drosophila eggs was applied… (More)
