Abstract:For isozyme characterization of live mosquitoes, one hind leg of an etherized mosquito is removed and triturated, and then the tissue homogenate is used for cellulose acetate electrophoresis. This allows genotype determination of live, virgin mosquitoes so that it is possible to sel planned genetic crosses, thus accelerating selection for homozygous enzyme markers and reducing negative effects of repeated inbreeding.
