vector competence of peruvian mosquitoes (diptera: culicidae) for a subtype iiic virus in the venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis complex isolated from mosquitoes captured in peru.we evaluated mosquitoes collected in the amazon basin, near iquitos, peru, for their susceptibility to a subtype iiic strain of the venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis complex. this virus had been previously isolated from a pool of mixed culex vomerifer and cx. gnomatos captured near iquitos, peru, in 1997. after feeding on hamsters with viremias of about 10(8) plaque-forming units of virus per ml, cx. gnomatos was the most efficient vector. other species, such as ochlerotatus fulvus and psoroph ...200616646325
susceptibility of peruvian mosquitoes to eastern equine encephalitis virus.mosquitoes were collected in the amazon basin, near iquitos, peru, and used in experimental studies to evaluate their susceptibility to strains of eastern equine encephalitis virus (eeev) that were isolated from mosquitoes captured within 20 km of iquitos. when fed on hamsters or chickens with a viremia of 4105 plaque-forming units (pfu) of eeev/ml, culex pedroi sirivanakarn and belkin, aedesfulvus (wiedemann), psorophora albigenu (peryassu), and psorophoraferox (von humboldt) were susceptible t ...200818714873
