A sex-linked Ace gene, not linked to insensitive acetylcholinesterase-mediated insecticide resistance in Culex pipiens

An acetylcholinesterase (AChE) gene, Ace.x, showing 93% identity of deduced amino acid sequence to Anopheles stephensi Ace has been cloned from a Culex pipiens strain homozygous for insensitive AChE (iAChE) mediated insecticide resistance. DNA sequence of genomic DNA clones identified exons 2-5. RFLP of six clones indicated four possible alleles. Linkage analysis located Ace.x to chromosome I, less than 0.8 centimorgans from the sex locus, whereas the locus conferring resistance was 2.0 centimorgans from plum-eye on chromosome II. Ace.1 coding for AChE1, which is associated with resistance, is therefore autosomal. We propose that Ace.x is the recently postulated Ace.2 coding for the biochemically distinct AChE2, which is not associated with resistance.

Ribosomal DNA analyses reveal greater sequence variation in Polymyxa species than previously thought and indicate the possibility of new ribotype-host-virus associations. Smith, Madeleine J.; Adams, Michael J.; Ward, Elaine (2013-02)Polymyxa species transmit viruses to many important crops. They are poorly-understood obligate 29 parasites occupying a distinct position in the Tree of Life. To better understand the potential for 30 spread of Polymyxa-vectored ...
Children retain implicitly learned phonological sequences better than adults: A longitudinal study Smalle, Eleonore H M; Page, Michael; Duyck, Wouter; Edwards, Martin G.; Szmalec, Arnaud (2018-09-01)Whereas adults often rely on explicit memory, children appear to excel in implicit memory, which plays an important role in the acquisition of various cognitive skills, such as those involved in language. The current study ...
