Abstract:The increasing population of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes on Madeira
Island (Portugal) resulted in the first autochthonous dengue outbreak, which occurred
in October 2012. Our study establishes the first genetic evaluation based on the
mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) genes [cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) and NADH
dehydrogenase subunit 4 (ND4)] and knockdown resistance ( kdr )
mutations exploring the colonisation history and the genetic diversity of this
insular vector population. We included mosquito populations fro… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
