Blood digestion in the malaria mosquito Anopheles gambiae: molecular cloning and biochemical characterization of two inducible chymotrypsins.

Abstract

The elucidation of digestive processes in the Anopheles gambiae gut leading to the utilization of the blood meal will result in a deeper understanding of the physiology of blood digestion and its impact on parasite-vector interactions. Accordingly, the identification of digestive serine proteases in A. gambiae has implications for the development of… (More)
