Phenotypic segregation of Aedes aegypti for immune antibacterial activity and resistance to filariae

Abstract:

We report the phenotypic selection of two lines of Aedes aegypti, from a filariae susceptible parental stock (Refm). This selection was based upon the level of inducible anti-gram negative Escherichia coli activity within the haemolymph following E. coli infection. These lines, denoted `high' and `low', demonstrated significant differences in anti-E. coli responses throughout. However no difference was observed in the anti-gram positive Micrococcus luteus response following E. coli challenge....
