Elvira Zamora Perea et al.
Malaria journal, 8, 208-208 (2009-09-05)
The purpose of this study was to establish whether the "bottle assay", a tool for monitoring insecticide resistance in mosquitoes, can complement and augment the capabilities of the established WHO assay, particularly in resource-poor, logistically challenging environments. Laboratory reared Aedes...
Hong-min Yu et al.
Environmental toxicology and pharmacology, 38(3), 733-741 (2014-10-10)
The purpose of this study is to examine germ cells apoptosis and reduction of spermatogenesis which might be induced by deltamethrin (DM). Furthermore, the study is performed to determine if the apoptosis is mediated by the signaling proteins: eNOS, JNK1...
Glyn A Vale et al.
PLoS neglected tropical diseases, 9(3), e0003560-e0003560 (2015-03-05)
African trypansomiases of humans and animals can be controlled by attacking the vectors, various species of tsetse fly. Treatment of cattle with pyrethroids to kill tsetse as they feed is the most cost-effective method. However, such treatments can contaminate cattle...
Marina G Pintado-Herrera et al.
Analytica chimica acta, 851, 1-13 (2014-12-03)
This work presents the development, optimization and validation of a multi-residue method for the simultaneous determination of 102 contaminants, including fragrances, UV filters, repellents, endocrine disruptors, biocides, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and several types of pesticides in...
Koichi Hirata et al.
PLoS neglected tropical diseases, 8(8), e3085-e3085 (2014-08-29)
The voltage-sensitive sodium (Na+) channel (Vssc) is the target site of pyrethroid insecticides. Pest insects develop resistance to this class of insecticide by acquisition of one or multiple amino acid substitution(s) in this channel. In Southeast Asia, two major Vssc...
Corentin M Barbu et al.
Emerging infectious diseases, 20(12), 2055-2063 (2014-11-26)
Chagas disease vector control campaigns are being conducted in Latin America, but little is known about medium-term or long-term effectiveness of these efforts, especially in urban areas. After analyzing entomologic data for 56,491 households during the treatment phase of a...
Yufang Song et al.
Journal of hazardous materials, 289, 158-164 (2015-03-01)
In this study, the long-term toxic effects of pyrethroids on the earthworm Eisenia fetida were evaluated. Earthworms were exposed to moist filter paper and soil for 14 days to evaluate the survival, exposed to soil for 56 days to assess...
Hanne B Moeller et al.
Journal of cell science, 127(Pt 14), 3174-3183 (2014-05-31)
The post-translational modifications (PTMs) phosphorylation and ubiquitylation regulate plasma membrane protein function. Here, we examine the interplay between phosphorylation and ubiquitylation of the membrane protein aquaporin-2 (AQP2) and demonstrate that phosphorylation can override the previously suggested dominant endocytic signal of...
Guoding Zhu et al.
BMC genomics, 15, 448-448 (2014-06-10)
Anopheles sinensis is a major malaria vector in China and other Southeast Asian countries, and it is becoming increasingly resistant to the insecticides used for agriculture, net impregnation, and indoor residual spray. Very limited genomic information on this species is...
Zhentao Lei et al.
Parasitology research, 114(2), 699-706 (2014-11-26)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate gene expression and biological processes including embryonic development, innate immunity, and infection in many species. Emerging evidence indicates that miRNAs are involved in drug resistance. However, little is known about the relationship between the miRNAs and insecticide...
Kyu-Sik Chang et al.
Journal of medical entomology, 51(4), 804-810 (2014-08-15)
An assessment was made of the toxicity of 12 insecticides and three essential oils as well as Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis (Bti) alone or in combination with the oil major constituents (E)-anethole (AN), (E) -cinnamaldehyde (CA), and eugenol (EU; 1:1...
Muhammad M Hossain et al.
Toxicological sciences : an official journal of the Society of Toxicology, 143(1), 220-228 (2014-11-02)
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is implicated as a significant contributor to neurodegeneration and cognitive dysfunction. Previously, we reported that the widely used pyrethroid pesticide deltamethrin causes ER stress-mediated apoptosis in SK-N-AS neuroblastoma cells. Whether or not this occurs in vivo...
Marie Meyer-Monath et al.
Analytical and bioanalytical chemistry, 406(30), 7785-7797 (2014-11-10)
Meconium is the earliest stool of newborns. It is a complex matrix that reflects the degree of fetal exposure to environmental pollutants. To investigate exposure to xenobiotics, an analytical method was developed to identify and quantify some pesticides and their...
Sandra M De Urioste-Stone et al.
Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 109(2), 159-167 (2015-01-22)
Integrated vector management strategies depend on local eco-bio-social conditions, community participation, political will and inter-sectorial partnership. Previously identified risk factors for persistent Triatoma dimidiata infestation include the presence of rodents and chickens, tiled roofs, dirt floors, partial wall plastering and...
James M Starr et al.
Toxicology, 320, 15-24 (2014-03-19)
National surveys of United States households and child care centers have demonstrated that pyrethroids are widely distributed in indoor habited dwellings and this suggests that co-exposure to multiple pyrethroids occurs in nonoccupational settings. The purpose of this research was to...
