Table 2 Comparison of enzyme activities of SENN and SENN-DDT An. arabiensis adults eclosed from fasted larvae (2 day cohort) against their corresponding control cohorts (eclosed from larvae fed thrice daily) by gender

From: The effect of larval nutritional deprivation on the life history and DDT resistance phenotype in laboratory strains of the malaria vector Anopheles arabiensis
