We report the complete cDNA sequence of the Anopheles gambiae voltage-gated sodium channel (VGSC) a subunit isolated from mature adult mosquitoes. The genomic DNA contains 35 deduced exons with a predicted translation of <= 2139 amino acid cDNAs. The transcription of the gene is, however, complex, alternate splicing being evident for at least five ...
