PMID: 29755433
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00801

[…] The sequences of hnt and mammal orthologue ras responding binding element-1 (Ming et al., ) were aligned using Multiple Sequences Alignments MUSCLE tool (Edgar, ).The sequences were obtained from Vectorbase database3 (Anopheles albimanus AALB003334, Anopheles gambiae AGAP000984, Aedes albopictus AALF021323, Culex quinquefasciatus CPIJ017756, Stomoxys calcitrans SCAU012431, Musca domestica MDOA […]


Partial arm translocations in evolution of malaria mosquitoes revealed by high coverage physical mapping of the Anopheles atroparvus genome

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5914054
PMID: 29688842
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4663-4
call_split See protocol

[…] lds, several dozen genes from the candidate scaffolds’ ends were selected. Orthologous genes for these genes in the An. gambiae and An. albimanus genomes were identified using BioMart ( If orthologs for all An. atroparvus genes from candidate scaffolds’ ends were located continuously in single scaffolds of An. gambiae and An. albimanus, An. atroparv […]

PMID: 29706902
DOI: 10.3389/fphys.2018.00380
call_split See protocol

[…] Amino acid sequences for mosquito (, Drosophila ( or human (Genbank) ZIP (SLC39), ZnT (SLC30), and NRAMP (SLC11) genes were downloaded from the respective databases and aligned using ClustalW (Larkin et al., […]


A fine tuned vector parasite dialogue in tsetse's cardia determines peritrophic matrix integrity and trypanosome transmission success

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 5898766
PMID: 29614112
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006972
call_split See protocol

[…] tome reads were first trimmed and filtered to remove ambiguous nucleotides and low-quality sequences. The remaining reads were mapped to Glossina morsitans morsitans reference transcriptome GmorY1.5 ( Reads aligning uniquely to Glossina transcripts were used to calculate differential gene expression using EdgeR package in R software [].Significance was determined using EdgeR exact […]


A standard photomap of ovarian nurse cell chromosomes and inversion polymorphism in Anopheles beklemishevi

PMCID: 5870207
PMID: 29587834
DOI: 10.1186/s13071-018-2657-3

[…] osome arms of An. beklemishevi were selected based on similarity with the An. atroparvus mapped genome []. The primer design was based on gene annotations from the AatrE1 genome assembly available at VectorBase []. PCR was performed in the presence of 1× PCR buffer (SibEnzyme Ltd., Novosibirsk, Russia), 2.5 mM MgCl2 (SibEnzyme Ltd., Novosibirsk, Russia), 0.2 mM dNTP (Thermo Fisher Scientific, Walt […]


Variations in the Peritrophic Matrix Composition of Heparan Sulphate from the Tsetse Fly, Glossina morsitans morsitans

PMCID: 5874758
PMID: 29562674
DOI: 10.3390/pathogens7010032

[…] Known human protein sequences were used as templates for the search (Uniprot accession numbers shown in ). Tblastn analyses [] were performed on VectorBase website engine []. Protein sequence alignment was performed using the built-in alignment plugin available at The Universal Protein Resource (UniProt). […]
