Two Haplotypes of Aedes aegypti Detected by ND4 Mitochondrial Marker in Three Regions of Ecuador

Abstract: Aedes aegypti, also known as the yellow fever mosquito, is the main vector of several arboviruses. In Ecuador, dengue and chikungunya are the most prevalent mosquito-borne diseases. Hence, there is a need to understand the population dynamics and genetic structure of the vector in tropical areas for a better approach towards effective vector control programs. This study aimed to assess the genetic diversity of Ae. aegypti, through the analyses of the mitochondrial gene ND4, using a combination of phylogenetic … Show more

“…Studies based on different nuclear or mitochondrial molecular markers applied to mosquitoes collected in the Americas [9][10][11]16,18,40] report lower genetic diversity than in some Asian countries [25,26,30,[41][42][43][44] and most of Africa [22,31,45]. However, regardless of their country of origin, the vast majority of studies worldwide suggest the existence of two distinct lineages of Ae.…”
