Table 3 Enzyme activities of the Anopheles arabiensis SENN DDT strain at ambient (25 °C) and elevated (37 °C) temperatures

From: The effect of elevated temperatures on the life history and insecticide resistance phenotype of the major malaria vector Anopheles arabiensis (Diptera: Culicidae)

Treatment Two-sample t test
Enzyme Enzyme activity at 25 °C (±SD) Enzyme activity at 37 °C (±SD)
P450 (cytochrome P450 equivalents/mg/ml) 0.0016 (±0.001) 0.0012 (±0.001) P = 0.19 T = 1.30; df = 94
α-Esterase (α-Napthol equivalents/mg/ml) 0.0805 (±0.006) 0.0895 (±0.010) P = 0.45 T = −0.76; df = 94
