Ion regulation is a biological process crucial to the survival of mosquito larvae and a major organ responsible for this regulation is the rectum. The recta of anopheline larvae are distinct from other subfamilies of mosquitoes in several ways, yet have not yet been characterized extensively. Here we characterize the two major cell types of the anopheline rectum, DAR and non-DAR cells, using histological, physiological, and pharmacological analyses. Proton flux was measured at the basal… CONTINUE READING
