An initial survey for Wolbachia (Rickettsiales : Rickettsiaceae) infections in selected california mosquitoes (Diptera : Culicidae)


By: J. Rasgon* & T. Scott*

author keywords: Wolbachia; wsp; mosquito; classification; transgenic
MeSH headings : Animals; California; Culicidae / microbiology; Wolbachia / classification; Wolbachia / isolation & purification
TL;DR: Knowing of biogeographic variation in Wolbachia infection rates and inferred susceptibility to infection among different mosquito taxa has fundamental implications for the design and successful application of Wol Bachia-based vector-borne disease control strategies. (via Semantic Scholar)

Crimson: A novel sex-linked eye color mutant of Culex pipiens L. (Diptera : Culicidae)


By: J. Rasgon n & T. Scott n

author keywords: Culex pipiens; eye color mutant; ommochrome; 3-hydroxykynurenine; xanthommatin
MeSH headings : Aging; Animals; Crosses, Genetic; Culex / genetics; Eye / cytology; Eye Color / genetics; Female; Homozygote; Male; Mutation; Phenotype; Tryptophan Oxygenase / genetics
TL;DR: Two possible mechanisms for the crimson mutation are suggested: (1) transport of 3HK into the pigment cells and/or pigment granules is slow, with normal oxidation of 3 HK into xanthommatin, or (2) 3HK is transported normally into pigment cells/granules but is not immediately oxidized to xanthomatin, resulting in 3HK hyper-accumulation and slow nonenzymatic production of xanthamatin after adult emergence.

Impact of population age structure on Wolbachia transgene driver efficacy: ecologically complex factors and release of genetically modified mosquitoes


By: J. Rasgon n & T. Scott*

author keywords: Wolbachia; vector-borne disease; mathematical model; population dynamics; transgenic mosquito; drive mechanism; Anopheles gambiae; Aedes aegypti; Culex pipiens
MeSH headings : Aedes / genetics; Aedes / growth & development; Aging; Animals; Animals, Genetically Modified / growth & development; Animals, Genetically Modified / microbiology; Anopheles / genetics; Anopheles / growth & development; Culex / genetics; Culex / growth & development; Culicidae / genetics; Culicidae / growth & development; Models, Biological; Population; Wolbachia / genetics; Wolbachia / growth & development
TL;DR: A model including ecologically complex factors such as the age structure of vector populations and overlapping vector generations assessed their impact on the process of Wolbachia spread into populations of three mosquito species to support the perspective that understanding ecological factors is critical for designing transgenic vector-borne disease control strategies.
