Figure 2

Voltage gated sodium channel and the 1016 and 1534 alleles found in Brazilian Aedes aegypti populations. The NaV is represented with its four domains (I-IV), each with the six transmembrane segments (S1-S6). The voltage sensitive S4 and the pore forming S6 segments are colored in blue and green, respectively (scheme adapted from [9]). The 1016 and 1534 kdr sites in Aedes aegypti are indicated. Mutant amino acids are underlined.
