1. Membranes prepared from chicken skin provide a suitable medium through which Aëdes aegypti females may be induced to gorge. 2. Under suitable conditions the proportion of female A. aegypti which will gorge through membranes, though more variable than when a living chick is offered, is great enough for experimental purposes. 3. It is shown that the gorging reaction in A. aegypti is provoked by a heat gradient between the environment and the food-limiting membrane. 4. The feeding reactions of… 

Artificial Bloodfeeder Glytube: Evaluating Different Types of Membranes and Blood Sources for Feeding Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus.

Mosquito colony maintenance in the laboratory is essential for research but presents logistical and ethical problems with the use of live animals for bloodfeeding. The Glytube is an artificial

DEVELOPMENT OF BRUGIA PAHANGI MICROFILARIAE FROM JIRD PERITONEAL CAVITY IN AEDES AEGYPTI

It is proved that the microfilariae develop to infective larvae in the mosquitoes which have not taken blood, serum or protein meals, and 10-3M ATP is the most effective of the nucleotides tested.

ON THE DIURNAL RHYTHMUS OF BITING BEHAVIOR OF AEDES AEG YPTI IN RELATION TO THE AGE AND TO THE HEMORRHAGIC FEVER IN BANGKOK, 1964 (Preliminary report)

The authors attempted to elucidate the diurnal rhythmus of the mosquito collected hourly from sunrise to sunset in the house in Bangkok keeping in mind any relation with the age of mosquitoes.

Observations on the Development of Setaria labiatopapillosa using New Techniques for Infecting Aedes aegypti with this Nematode

The common filarial parasite of cattle in Africa, Setaria labiatopapillosa, has been shown to develop in the mosquito Aedes aegypti, and new techniques were developed to avoid feeding mosquitoes on cattle.

Effects of the Environmental Temperature on Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus Mosquitoes: A Review

This work synthesizes the current knowledge on the impact of temperature on the mosquito flight activity and host-seeking behavior, ecology and dispersion, as well as its potential effect on the pathogens themselves and how climate can affect the transmission of some of these pathogens.

Age-dependent bloodfeeding of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus on artificial and living hosts.

Compared bloodfeeding patterns of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus starting from the time of first responsiveness to a bloodmeal up to 15 days postemergence, which suggested possible control by endogenous rhythms.

Adenine Nucleotides as Feeding Stimulants of the Tsetse Fly Glossina austeni Newst.

THE feeding behaviour of the tsetse fly has attracted the attention of various investigators, and this was the first blood sucking insect to be fed artificially through a rat skin membrane1. This

A Method for Collecting Sporozoites of Plasmodium gallinaceum by Feeding Infected Aedes aegypti through Animal Membranes

Since a true prophylactic drug, that is, one which will prevent sporozoite-induced infections, is the most urgent requirement in the chemotherapy of malaria, a method for testing drugs directly on sporozoites is of great importance.

The Action of Atebrin on Bird Malaria

Atebrin given during the incubation period delays the appearance of parasites in the blood of birds infected by direct blood inoculation with Plasmodium relictum, but has some action in diminishing the severity of the attack and the degree of splenic enlargement.

Biology of the Malarial Parasite in the Vertebrate Host

A feature of these exoerythrocytic parasites was their great refractoriness to drugs such as quinine and atebrin, and it was suggested, that such forms might be present in human malaria and constitute the explanation of why relapses so frequently occur.

The alimentary canal of Anopheles consists of the following parts: Mouth, Buccal cavity, Pharynx or Pumping-Organ, Oesophagus, Three food reservoirs, and three food reservoirs.

The Action of Plasmoquine on Mosquito-induced Malaria of Birds

The experiments described show that plasmoquine is very effective in preventing or delaying attacks of malaria in birds infected with P. relictum by direct blood inoculation, but has little or no

A Study of the Behaviour of the Mouth-Parts of Mosquitoes when taking up Blood from Living Tissue ; together with Some Observations on the Ingestion of Microfilariae.

Exo-erythrocytic schizogony in Plasmodium gallinaceum Brumpt, 1935

In Plasmodium gallinaceum, parasitic in domestic fowls, schizogony also occurs in monocytes and cells of the reticulo-endothelial system, and exo-erythrocytic schizonts are not confined to leucocytes of the blood stream, but can also develop in fixed endothelial cells of organs such as the brain.
