Figure 5

Detoxification enzyme activities of Anopheles arabiensis SENN-DDT by age and as a function of blood feeding regimen in females. Block A represents Cytochrome P450 activity as measured by haeme peroxidase activity, Block B represents GST activity, Block C represents α esterase activity and Block D β esterase activity. Enzyme activities in males were measured as baseline levels against which the enzyme activities of unfed, single blood meal and multiple blood meal cohorts of females were compared.
