Newswise: DEET Gives Humans an ‘Invisibility Cloak’ to Fend Off Mosquito Bites

Article ID: 720901

DEET Gives Humans an ‘Invisibility Cloak’ to Fend Off Mosquito Bites

Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics

Since its invention during the Second World War for soldiers stationed in countries where malaria transmission rates were high, researchers have worked to pinpoint precisely how DEET actually affects mosquitos. Past studies have analyzed the chemical structure of the repellent, studied the response in easier insects to work with, such as fruit flies, and experimented with genetically engineered mosquito scent receptors grown inside frog eggs. However, the Anopheles mosquito’s neurological response to DEET and other repellents remained largely unknown because directly studying the scent-responsive neurons in the mosquito itself was technically challenging and labor-intensive work.
