A Plasmodium-refractory strain (L35) of the mosquito Anopheles gambiae Giles melanizes late ookinetes on the basal surface of the midgut, resulting in the death of the parasites. This strain also melanizes CM C-25 Sephadex beads, which serve as a model system for investigating the melanization response. The effects of larval nutrition, adult body size, and temperature of the adult environment on the ability of refractory females to melanize CM C-25 beads were studied. Nutritional deprivation… CONTINUE READING
