• Brazil
  • gambiae invaded northeastern Brazil in 1930, which led to a malaria epidemic in 1938/1939. (wikipedia.org)
  • A survey of Anopheles gambiae in Brazil was carried out in May, June, July, and the first week in August, 1939, months representative of the climate of the country at the close of the wet, and well into the dry, seasons. (ajtmh.org)
  • We were enabled to obtain in a comparatively short time a great deal of first-hand information about A. gambiae in Brazil and its effect upon the population as we were supplied with full facilities for transportation and field laboratories. (ajtmh.org)
  • genetic
  • With his colleagues in Crete, he developed AnoDB/AnoBase, the first genetic databases for Anopheles, which later evolved into VectorBase. (wikipedia.org)
  • activation
  • gambiae clip serine proteases (CLIPBs) that are required for activation of phenoloxidase and thus regulate melanization. (k-state.edu)
  • system
  • The system of subgenera originated with the work of Christophers, who in 1915 described three subgenera: Anopheles (widely distributed), Myzomyia (later renamed Cellia) (Old World) and Nyssorhynchus (Neotropical). (wikipedia.org)
