Table 3 Enzyme activity alterations in Aedes RIO males and females compared to the Rockefeller strain

From: Insecticide resistance, fitness and susceptibility to Zika infection of an interbred Aedes aegypti population from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Aedes Rio AChE GST α-EST β-EST ρNPA-EST MFO
Male 0 76 28 0 55 0
Female 10 50 16 0 28 0
  1. Notes: Enzyme activities were classified as unaltered (regular font), altered (italic) and highly altered (italic and bold), if < 15, 15–50 or > 50% of individuals, respectively, presented activities above the corresponding Rockefeller 99th percentile value (see “Methods” for more details)
  2. Abbreviations: MFO, multi-function oxidases; EST, esterases; α-EST, β-EST and ρNPA-EST, substrates (α- and β-naphthyl and ρ-nitrophenil acetates) employed for EST, GST, glutathione S-transferase
