Fig. 2

Activity profiles of non-specific α- and β-esterases and mixed-function oxidases (cytochrome P450) in Ae. aegypti (a, c, e) and Ae. albopictus (b, d, f). Numbers in parentheses indicate the number of mosquitoes assayed. Asterisks indicate significant increase in wild populations compared to SBE susceptible strain values (P < 0.05, Mann-Whitney tests). Abbreviations: SBE, Benin strain; IPB, Institut Pasteur de Bangui; NES, non-specific esterase; MFO, mixed-function oxidase
