Introduction Aedes aegypti (Ae. aegypti), which is commonly known as the yellow fever mosquito, is recognized for the transmission of the most significant arboviral diseases, including dengue, chikungunya, and zika viruses [1,2] It is estimated that 70% (831 million) of the African population is vulnerable to arboviral disease infections . This species is a tropical and subtropical mosquito with distribution throughout the globe but native to Sub-Saharan and African Sahelian regions, including Senegal, Cameroon, Kenya, Nigeria, Morocco, Western Sahara, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, and Sudan [4,5]. Known as the domestic mosquito, Ae. aegypti feeds on humans (anthropophilic) during the daytime hours.
It also rests at indoor sites and breeds within and around the human environment, particularly in man-made containers (e.g., water jars, barrels, and tires) [6,7]. SMART LIGHTING 29/10/20 La luz artificial en la noche aumenta las picaduras de mosquitos Aedes aegypti, un vector principal de transmisión de enfermedades víricas. Responses of antennal olfactory sensilla to human odorants in Ae. aegypti Five morphological types of olfactory sensilla have been previously identified on the antennae of Ae. aegypti mosquitoes, namely long sharp tipped (LST), short sharp tipped (SST), short blunt tipped I (SBTI), short blunt tipped II (SBTII), and grooved peg (GP)25,26.
In this study, we examined the neuronal response of each type of olfactory sensilla of female Ae. aegypti mosquitoes against 103 human odorants from 11 chemical classes that have been isolated from skin emanations24. Hierarchical cluster analysis on the responses of these five morphological types of sensilla to the 103 human odorants revealed seven physiological clusters (Fig. S1). In particular, three functional subtypes of SST sensilla (55% of SST1, 14% of SST2, and 31% of SST3) were identified and defined according to their distinctive neuronal response profiles to the odorants on the panel (Fig. 1A,B).

Front Med (Lausanne). 2020 Jun 23; Historical Perspective and Biotechnological Trends to Block Arboviruses Transmission by Controlling Aedes aegypti Mosquitos Using Different Approaches. Introduction Mosquitoes of the Culicidae family are considered the most dangerous animals on earth due to their capacity to transmit diseases and their medical importance regarding viruses, protozoa, and nematode transmission (1).
According to the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) vector-borne diseases are considered public health problems and have a major social and economic impact causing high morbidity and mortality, especially in developing countries (2).

Sequence characteristics and expression patterns of A. aegypti serine hydroxymethyltransferase In the latest genome assembly for A. aegypti (AaegL5), SHMT is located on Chromosome 1:90, 394, 257-90, 421, 721, and has four alternative splicing forms (transcripts), namely AAEL002510-RA, AAEL002510-RB, AAEL002510-RC and AAEL002510-RD, but encodes two isoforms of protein with 573 aa and 475 aa (Fig. 1a–d).
The short protein translated from AAEL002510-RB lacks 99 amino acids at the N-end and has seven amino acids different from the longer one encoded by the other three transcripts. The two kinds of protein-coding regions (CDS) were cloned into prokaryotic expression vector and expressed in bacteria (Fig. 1e–g), followed by purifying the proteins to prepare antibodies.

JOURNAL OF VECTOR ECOLOGY 15/11/19 A new approach to improve acoustic trapping effectiveness for Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) Worldwide, Aedes aegypti mosquitoes are the main vectors of dengue, chikungunya, and Zika viruses (Mayer et al. 2017).
As there are no effective treatments for these mosquito‐borne diseases, prevention of their transmission depends mainly on controlling vector populations. Traditional control strategies, however, exhibit serious difficulties (WHO 2014). As a consequence, hindering reproduction has been one of the main reasons for developing new biologically‐based strategies like radiated, transgenic or symbiont‐based approaches (Bourtzis et al. 2016).
JOURNAL OF VECTOR ECOLOGY 03/06/20 Elimination of Aedes aegypti in northern Australia, 2004–2006. Aedes aegypti is a vector for arbovirus‐borne diseases such as dengue, Zika, chikungunya, and yellow fever, with dengue outbreaks causing high mortality in many tropical countries (Gubler 1998, Stanaway et al. 2016, Christofferson 2016).
Although dengue is not currently endemic in Australia, the vector is well established in central and far northern Queensland (Qld), where importations of the virus in infected travelers has led to dengue outbreaks (Hanna et al. 2003, Russell and Kay 2004, Ritchie et al. 2013). Aedes aegypti was also widely established in the Northern Territory (NT) until the 1940s, where it was recorded from Darwin, the principal city on the north coast, to Newcastle Waters in the south, before it disappeared between 1956 and 1974 (Whelan 1981).
INSECTS 06/11/18 Effects of the Environmental Temperature on Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus Mosquitoes: A Review. INSECTS 01/08/19 Aedes aegypti Males as Vehicles for Insecticide Delivery. Aedes aegypti continues to spread globally and remains a challenge to control, in part due to its ‘cryptic behavior’ in that it often deposits eggs (oviposits) in larval habitats that are difficult to find and treat using traditional methods. Auto-dissemination strategies target these cryptic breeding sites by employing mosquitoes to deliver lethal doses of insecticide. This report describes the initial field trials of an application known as Autodissemination Augmented by Males (ADAM), utilizing A. aegypti males dusted with pyriproxyfen (PPF). Findings presented here are drawn from both caged and field trial studies. Together, these trials examined for the ability of A. aegypti males to disseminate PPF and to impact field populations.
PPF-dusted males were able to effectively deliver lethal doses of PPF to oviposition sites under the conditions tested.

Potential of Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) to transmit yellow fever virus in urban areas in Central Africa. Background Yellow fever (YF) is a mosquito borne viral disease endemic in South America and Sub-Saharan African countries. Clinical signs vary from a fever with aches and pains to severe liver disease with bleeding and yellowing skin (jaundice), for which there is no specific treatment. Despite the availability of an effective vaccine, which can offer a lifelong immunity, numerous cases of YF are still being reported. Indeed, a modelling study based on African data sources estimated that the burden of YF during 2013 was 84 000–170 000 severe cases and 29 000–60 000 deaths [1Garske T, Van Kerkhove MD, Yactayo S, et al.
ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION 26/04/19 Wolbachia pipientis occurs in Aedes aegypti populations in New Mexico and Florida, USA. Wolbachia are obligate intracellular bacteria found in a wide range of terrestrial arthropods and nematodes (Werren, Baldo, & Clark, 2008). The bacterium was discovered in the reproductive tissues (testes and ovaries) of the mosquito Culex pipiens L. by Hertig and Wolbach in 1924 (Hertig & Wolbach, 1924) and was formally described as Wolbachia pipientis by Hertig in 1936 (Hertig, 1936). About 60%–70% of all insect species harbor Wolbachia , including some mosquito species (Hilgenboecker, Hammerstein, Schlattmann, Telschow, & Werren, 2008).

NATURE 01/05/20 Accelerating invasion potential of disease vector Aedes aegypti under climate change. Study species Aedes aegypti is the primary vector for several important viruses of global health concern, including dengue, zika, yellow fever and chikungunya. Previous studies have suggested that climate change may have already influenced or will influence the distribution of suitable environments in which Ae. aegypti can thrive, resulting in changes in disease risk50,66. Beyond its health relevance, Ae. aegypti is an ideal species to use for exploring the utility of phenology models for human disease vectors because appropriate data for model parameterisation and validation are broadly available in the literature.
