Table 1 Radio-sterilization of ANO IPCL1. Percentage of egg hatch, resulting in first instar larvae or in emerged adults in progeny from males subjected to different radiation doses at the pupal or adult stage.

From: Genetic sex separation of the malaria vector, Anopheles arabiensis, by exposing eggs to dieldrin

  1. Within one treatment (same dose and stage of irradiation), values followed by different letters are statistically significantly different (P < 0.05).
  2. Emergence of adults could not be followed for control treatments.
