... members of the NAT population in the African malaria mosquito Anopheles gambiae , two of which, AgNAT6 and AgNAT8,preferably transport indole- and phenyl-branched substrates, respectively. The relative expression and distribution of these aromatic NATs were examined with transporter-specific antibodies in...

... action of various NAT members in the amino acid transport network are virtually unexplored. A new transporter, agNAT8, was cloned from the malaria vector mosquito Anopheles gambiae (SS). Upon heterologous expression in Xenopus oocytes it performs high-capacity, sodium-coupled (2:1)uptake of nutrients...

..., we attempted a comprehensive description of the salivary transcriptome of this most important vector of malaria transmission. In addition to many transcripts associated with housekeeping functions, we found an active transposable element, a set of Wolbachia- like proteins, several transcription...

...Mayumi Akaki; James A. Dvorak SUMMARY Sporozoite invasion of mosquito salivary glands is critical for malaria transmission to vertebrate hosts. After release into the mosquito hemocoel,the means by which malaria sporozoites locate the salivary glands is unknown. We developed a Matrigel-based in...

...Mike A. Osta; George K. Christophides; Dina Vlachou; Fotis C. Kafatos SUMMARY The resurgence of malaria is at least partly attributed to the absence of an effective vaccine, parasite resistance to antimalarial drugs and resistance to insecticides of the anopheline mosquito vectors. Novel strategies...
