ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the study that investigated the effects of blood-feeding functional changes in flight muscle (FM) mitochondria of Aedes aegypti Mosquito, which is a vector of dengue and yellow fever. For this two experimental groups were designed including one of the sugar-fed (SF) female adult mosquitoes and other of blood-fed (BF) female adult mosquitoes. Rates of mitochondrial respiration were assessed at different metabolic states and findings conclude that Blood-feeding effects the functional and structural changes in hematophagous insect mitochondria.
