Studies on the oxidative phosphorylation and the ultrastructure of the flight muscle mitochondria in the housefly Musca domestica vicina Macq


, : Studies on the oxidative phosphorylation and the ultrastructure of the flight muscle mitochondria in the housefly Musca domestica vicina Macq. Acta Entomologica Sinica 16(1): 1-14

The rates of respiration and oxidative phosphorylation of the mitochondria in Musca domestica vicina Macq. were significantly inhibited by DDT in vitro and in vivo, but the degree of inhibition was greater in susceptible than in DDT-resistant flies. These results indicated that the DDT-resistant flies in some degree showed more resistance to the action of DDT at the level of mitochondrial function than did the normal strain.
