Researchers aim to disrupt egg production in dengue- and Zika-spreading mosquito

Added: 23.02.2017 18:54 | 0 views | 0 comments

The mosquito Aedes aegypti, which can spread dengue fever, chikungunya, Zika fever, and yellow fever virus, requires a blood meal to develop eggs. One way to control the spread of these diseases is to tamper with the reproductive events that follow this mosquito's blood meal. A team of scientists has explored this at the molecular level. They focused on microRNAs, which play a critical role in mosquito egg maturation.

National dose levels established for 10 common adult CT examinations
