Published: 1 February 2020
... technological innovations like next-generation sequencing and CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing, the time is ripe to move beyond the big 6. In this review, we chart a 10-step path to this goal, using our own experience with the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which we built into a model organism for neurobiology in one decade...

...Amanda Jass; Gil Y. Yerushalmi; Hannah E. Davis; Andrew Donini; Heath A. MacMillan ABSTRACT The mosquito Aedes aegypti is largely confined to tropical and subtropical regions, but its range has recently been spreading to colder climates. As insect biogeography is tied to environmental temperature...

.... The simulator generates mild breezes of 1 m s –1 , comparable to a mosquito's flight speed, and sufficient to deter up to 50% of mosquitoes from landing. This study may help us determine new mosquito-repelling strategies that do not depend on chemicals. Using our measurements of the effect of air flow...

... fluid secretion into the caecal lumen despite intake of dilute medium by freshwater larvae. It is worth noting that previous electrophysiological studies of the isolated midgut of larval mosquitoes have perfused the lumen (e.g. Onken et al., 2004b ), thus allowing precise control of the luminal ion...

...Dmitry N. Lapshin; Dmitry D. Vorontsov ABSTRACT The Johnston's organs (JO) of mosquitoes are the most complex mechanosensitive organs yet found in insects. Previous findings on the behavior of mosquitoes suggest that, together with exceptional sensitivity, their auditory system can discriminate...

.... For mosquitoes, CO 2 is an important cue that signifies the presence of a host, and which elicits activation and attraction. To investigate the genetic basis of olfactory modulation in mosquitoes, we assayed changes in CO 2 detection from receptor gene expression through physiological function to behaviour...

... aorta. Here, we present qualitative and quantitative data characterizing the heart of the mosquito, Anopheles gambiae . Visual observation showed that the heart of resting mosquitoes contracts at a rate of 1.37 Hz (82 beats per minute) and switches contraction direction, with 72% of contractions...
