      his study compared the behavioural avoidance responses of the permethrin-resistant and deltamethrinresistant strains of Aedes aegypti, a primary vector of dengue haemorrhagic fever (‎DHF)‎ in Thailand. The background of biochemical-based resistance mechanism assay of these two strains revealed a significant increase of esterase activity and monooxygenase levels when compared with a laboratory- usceptible strain. Glutathione-S-transferase activity was found to increase only in the permethrin-resistant strain. The DNA sequence of knockdown resistance ...
