The Aedes aegypti (Ae. aegypti), strain LVP-IB12 is an inbred substrain of Ae. aegypti, strain Liverpool, which is tolerant to inbreeding while maintaining relevant phenotypes. Strain LVP-IB12 was selected from a Liverpool strain by 12 consecutive generations of isofemale line selection and inbreeding.

The parent Liverpool strain is susceptible to filaroid parasitic nematodes. However, Ae. aegypti, strain LVP-IB12 has been reported refractory to Dirofilaria immitis and Brugia malayi infection. It is fixed for a majority of loci across the entire genome. The complete genome of Ae. aegypti, strain Liverpool has been sequenced (GenBank: AAGE00000000) and based on use of the LVP-IB12 strain.

MRA-735 contains a suitable number of eggs to establish a stock. Eggs are provided on damp filter paper and should be hatched immediately upon receipt.
