Table 1 Effect of gene silencing on mosquito survival. The second column presents the hazard ratio (HR) of dying between a gene knockdown and dsLacZ control. The third column presents the hazard ratio of dying between a gene knockdown and dsLacZ control when mosquitoes are treated in parallel with antibiotics

From: The effect of silencing immunity related genes on longevity in a naturally occurring Anopheles arabiensis mosquito population from southwest Ethiopia
