Abstract:The mode of inheritance of resistance to apholate in Aedes aegypti (L.) was studied by constructing sterility-concentration curves for each sex of the resistant, susceptible, and F1 hybrid genotypes. The sc50 values were 48,30 for the resistant male. 2.26 for the susceptible male, 4.14 for the F1 male (resistant female X susceptible male), 19.50 for the F1 male (susceptible female X resistant male) , 31.61 for the resistant female. 3.22 for the susceptible female, 8.91 for the F1 female (resistant female X susceptible male). and 16.87 for the F1 female (susceptible female X resistant male). The results of genetic crosses indicated that apholate resistance in A. aegypti was a quantitative trait with a marked paternal influence on the resistance of F2 and backcross progeny.
There was no loss of resistance through 9 generations after selection pressure was removed from a subcolony of the resistant strain.
