Molecular characterization of Anopheles fluviatilis species complex in the Islamic Republic of Iran
AbstractA species-specific polymerase chain reaction [PCR] assay was used to identify the species composition of the Anopheles fluviatilis complex in the Islamic Republic of Iran. All the amplified DNA samples from specimens collected from different areas yielded a fragment of 450 bp size, a PCR product corresponding to that of the species denoted as Y. The sequence data from 21 ITS2 [second internal transcribed spacer] regions were compared with those publicly available in the GenBank database and confirmed that the specimens were 100% identical to species Y of India. Species Y is presumably the same as species T that has no role in transmission of malaria in India, whereas An. fluviatilis is known as a secondary vector of malaria in the Islamic Republic of Iran

Laboratory and field evaluation of two formulations of Bacillus thuringiensis M-H-14 against mosquito larvae in the Islamic Republic of Iran, 2012 Gezelbash, Z.; Vatandoost, H.; Abai, M.R.; Raeisi, A.; Rassi, Y.; Hanafi Bojd, A.A.; Jabbari, H; Nikpoor, F. (2014)Due to low efficacy in the field of a local commercial product of Bacillus thuringiensis M-H-14 [Bioflash[registered sign], a study was designed to assess its efficacy in laboratory, glass standard aquarium, semi-field and field conditions at both target and higher dosages against immature stages of Anopheles spp.and Culex spp.In laboratory conditions, the LCvalues of wettable powder and granule formulations were 227 and 1031 ppm respectively against a susceptible strain of An.stephensi.Following application of wettable powder and granules ...
