Abstract

Studies directed to investigate ecological parameters of mosquitoes populations allows to establish the risk of vector borne diseases transmission and to bring recommendations for health authorities about prevention, surveillance and control. We report some ecological aspects of mosquitoes populations in a region of Colombia. Quarterly sampling was done. For mosquito catching CDC and Shannon traps were used. Diversity and abundance indexes estimation was done. A total of 1071 mosquitoes belonging to four genera and 10 species were collected. The most abundant species were Cx quinquefasciatus (22.6%), Ae. aegypti (20.08%), Ae. scapularis (12.3%), Ae. angustivittatus (9%) and An. albimanus (8.0%). The finding of Cx pedroi, Ae. scapularis, Cx. nigripalpus, Cx. quinquefasciatus, Cx. declarator, Ma. titillans, and Ps. ferox previously reported as arbovirus vectors warns about the possibility of transmission in the zone and the finding of An. albimanus, also warns about the risk for malaria transmission in the area.

Antigenic Modulation

Antigenic modulation occurs when an antibody cross-links antigens on a cell surface, causing the antigens to become internalized. This can lead to therapeutic failure of monoclonal antibodies as the expression of the antigen becomes decreased on target cells. Find the latest research on antigenic modulation here.

Cell Checkpoints & Regulators

Cell cycle checkpoints are a series of complex checkpoint mechanisms that detect DNA abnormalities and ensure that DNA replication and repair are complete before cell division. They are primarily regulated by cyclins, cyclin-dependent kinases, and the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome. Here is the latest research.
