Abstract

Enzymes such as Esterase A and B (EST), alk. phosphatase (APH), acid phosphatase (ACPH), malate dehydrogenase (MDH), aldehyde oxidase (ALDOX) and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) were analyzed in 2 populations of Japanese encephalitis (JE) vectors, C. vishnui and C. fuscocephala. Comparisons were made between population from an agricultural field at Mandya district and suburban areas of Mysore. Heterozygosity and allelic frequencies at different loci were calcd. for each enzyme. The data has indicated significant variation between the 2 populations for EST alleles. In mosquitoes, esterases are an important group of enzymes responsible for the development of insecticide resistance. As the JE vectors under study are subjected to an year round insecticidal selection pressure in Mandya district, the result can be correlated to the ecol. status of the populations.
