The mosquito species complex Anopheles gambiae (A. gambiae) M form strains may also be referred to as A. coluzzii, since a new species designation for these strains has been proposed.

The A. gambiae, strain SUA2La colony was established in 1986 by Professor Mario Coluzzi from wild-caught, inseminated adult females collected in Suakoko, Liberia.

Wild-type SUA2La mosquitoes, molecularly identified as A. gambiae M form, were originally polymorphic for the 2Rb and 2La inversions, and later selected to be a Xag, 2R+, 2La, 3R+, 3L+ homozygote.  This homokaryotypic stock is the standard A. gambiae strain for genetic mapping, in situ hybridizations, and behavioral studies.  

MRA-765 contains a suitable number of eggs to establish a stock. Eggs are provided on damp filter paper and should be hatched immediately upon receipt.

Note:  For information on hatching and establishing a stock of A. gambiae refer to Methods in Anopheles Research.
