Activation of Akt Signaling Reduces the Prevalence and Intensity of Malaria Parasite Infection and Lifespan in Anopheles stephensi Mosquitoes

Figure 7

Lifespan experiments of sugarfed or bloodfed transgenic and non-transgenic mosquitoes.

A. A representative survivorship curve comparing transgenic (TG) and non-transgenic (NTG) siblings reared under identical conditions and provided with only a 10% sucrose solution. Lifespan experiments were replicated three times with separate cohorts of mosquitoes. B. A representative survivorship curve comparing transgenic (TG) and non-transgenic (NTG) siblings reared under identical conditions and provided with weekly bloodmeals and a 10% sucrose solution. Lifespan experiments were replicated three times with separate cohorts of mosquitoes. C. Summary of the samples sizes, medians, means, and statistical significance for sugarfed and bloodfed mosquitoes.
