the role of deer as a possible reservoir host of potosi virus, a newly recognized arbovirus in the united states.potosi (pot) virus (bunyaviridae) was isolated from aedes albopictus, an introduced asian mosquito species, collected at a used tire yard in potosi, missouri (usa), in august and september, 1989. in september, 1990, small animals were trapped at the tire yard and six cattle were sampled at an adjacent farm; in november 1990 and 1991, blood samples were collected with filter paper strips from 364 hunter-killed, white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) in the region to determine the possible res ...19968827670
cache valley and potosi viruses (bunyaviridae) in white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus): experimental infections and antibody prevalence in natural populations.cache valley virus (cvv) and potosi virus (potv) are two closely related mosquito-borne viruses (bunyaviridae: bunyamwera group) that appear to circulate in several regions of the united states, especially the midwest. we determined the prevalence of specific neutralizing antibodies to both viruses in indiana white-tailed deer and conducted infection experiments to assess whether deer could serve as an vertebrate-amplifying host. cross-infection experiments also were carried out to investigate t ...19989840585
arboviruses in north dakota, investigate arbovirus transmission in north dakota, we collected and screened mosquitoes for viral infection by vero cell culture assay. seven viruses were isolated from 13 mosquito species. spatial and temporal distributions of the important vectors of west nile virus (wnv), cache valley virus, jamestown canyon virus (jcv), and trivittatus virus are reported. snowshoe hare virus, potosi virus, and western equine encephalomyelitis virus were also isolated. the risks of culex tarsalis and aede ...201425487728
monitoring sheep and culicoides midges in montana for evidence of bunyamwera serogroup virus infection.a serological and entomological investigation was performed to monitor for potential bunyamwera (bun) serogroup virus activity in montana.201426392881
host interactions of aedes albopictus, an invasive vector of arboviruses, in virginia, an invasive mosquito species in the united states, aedes albopictus is a potential vector of arboviruses including dengue, chikungunya, and zika, and may also be involved in occasional transmission of other arboviruses such as west nile, saint louis encephalitis, eastern equine encephalitis, and la crosse viruses. aedes albopictus feeds on a wide variety of vertebrate hosts, wild and domestic, as well as humans.202133600413
