mosquito (diptera: culicidae) fauna in an area endemic for west nile virus.mosquito collections with cdc light traps using dry ice and pigeon-baited traps were carried out in south moravia (czech republic) from april to october in 2007 and 2008 at two study sites. in 2007, 11 two-day captures were carried out in two-week intervals, and 1,490 female mosquitoes of nine species were caught. in 2008, 15 two-day trappings of mosquitoes were carried out: 6,778 females of 22 species of mosquitoes were trapped. the results showed marked differences in abundance and species com ...201020618662
putative novel lineage of west nile virus in uranotaenia unguiculata mosquito, hungary.west nile virus (wnv) is an increasing public health concern in europe with numerous human cases. a total of 23,029 female mosquitoes were tested for a variety of mosquito-borne flaviviruses and orthobunyaviruses supposedly endemic in southern transdanubia, hungary, in the frames of a large-scale surveillance between 2011 and 2013. wnv nucleic acid was detected in a single pool containing uranotaenia unguiculata mosquitoes. sequence- and phylogenetic analyses for two different regions (ns5 and e ...201425674630
putative new west nile virus lineage in uranotaenia unguiculata mosquitoes, austria, 2013.west nile virus (wnv) is becoming more widespread and markedly effecting public health. we sequenced the complete polyprotein gene of a divergent wnv strain newly detected in a pool of uranotaenia unguiculata mosquitoes in austria. phylogenetic analyses suggest that the new strain constitutes a ninth wnv lineage or a sublineage of wnv lineage 4.025418009
west nile virus circulation in south-eastern romania, 2011 to 2013.lineage 2 west nile virus (wnv), previously found only in sub-saharan africa and madagascar, was identified in hungary in 2004 and has rapidly expanded in europe in the past decade. following a significant outbreak of west nile fever with neurological cases caused by lineage 1 wnv in romania in 1996, scattered cases have been recorded in the south-east of the country in each transmission season. another outbreak, affecting a larger area and caused by lineage 2 wnv, was recorded in 2010. we analy ...201526027486
overwintering of uranotaenia unguiculata adult females in central europe: a possible way of persistence of the putative new lineage of west nile virus?we report the overwintering of uranotaenia unguiculata adult females in central europe (czech republic, hungary, austria). this finding suggests a potential mode of winter persistence of putative novel lineage of west nile virus in the temperate regions of europe.201526675459
co-circulation of west nile virus and distinct insect-specific flaviviruses in vector surveillance provides an efficient tool for monitoring the presence or spread of emerging or re-emerging vector-borne viruses. this study was undertaken to investigate the circulation of flaviviruses. mosquitoes were collected from 58 locations in 10 provinces across the aegean, thrace and mediterranean anatolian regions of turkey in 2014 and 2015. following morphological identification, mosquitoes were pooled and screened by nested and real-time pcr assays. detected viruses were f ...201728320443
