Profile of enzymes related to the detoxification of chemical insecticides in the Aedes aegypti laboratory strains and the field population. Alfa-Esterase (α-Est), Beta-Esterase (β-Est), PNPA-esterase (PNPA), Glutathione-S-transferase (GST) and mixed-function oxidases (MFO). The bar indicates the frequency of individuals with altered enzyme activities in the following populations: a) RecReverse; b) RecRNEx; c) RecR and d) Arcoverde. The green bar represents population considered normal (when the frequency of mosquitoes with altered enzymatic activity was <15 %), the yellow bar represents population considered altered (when the frequency of mosquitoes with altered enzymatic activities was between 15 and 50 %), and the red bar represents population considered highly altered (frequency of mosquitoes with the altered enzymatic activity >50 %)
