Biochemical and molecular resistance mechanisms to DDT and some pyrethroid insecticides in vector of West Nile virus, Culex pipiens [post]

2020 unpublished
Objectives : Culex pipiens complex act as an important vector of several vector-borne diseases such as filariasis, West Nile virus, Japanese encephalitis and bird malaria. This study was designed in order to clarify the molecular and biochemical resistance mechanisms in Cx. pipiens to DDT and some pyrethroid insecticides from Tehran, capital of Iran. Materials and methods Profile activities of α-and ß-esterases, Mixed Function Oxidase (MFO),
