variation in cold hardiness of nondiapausing eggs of nine aedes (stegomyia) species (diptera: culicidae) from eastern asia and pacific islands ranging from the tropics to the cool-temperate zone.variation in cold hardiness was studied in the laboratory for the nondiapausing eggs of nine aedes (stegomyia) species from eastern asia and pacific islands, ranging from the tropics to the cool-temperate zone. species included were aedes aegypti (l.), aedes albopictus (skuse), aedes flavopictus yamada, aedes galloisi yamada, aedes hensilli farner, aedes palauensis bohart, aedes paullusi stone and farner, aedes riversi bohart and ingram, and aedes scutellaris (walker). for species with distribut ...201121485356
insect-specific flaviviruses: a systematic review of their discovery, host range, mode of transmission, superinfection exclusion potential and genomic organization.there has been a dramatic increase in the number of insect-specific flaviviruses (isfs) discovered in the last decade. historically, these viruses have generated limited interest due to their inability to infect vertebrate cells. this viewpoint has changed in recent years because some isfs have been shown to enhance or suppress the replication of medically important flaviviruses in co-infected mosquito cells. additionally, comparative studies between isfs and medically important flaviviruses can ...201525866904
insect-specific virus discovery: significance for the arbovirus community.arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses), especially those transmitted by mosquitoes, are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in humans and animals worldwide. recent discoveries indicate that mosquitoes are naturally infected with a wide range of other viruses, many within taxa occupied by arboviruses that are considered insect-specific. over the past ten years there has been a dramatic increase in the literature describing novel insect-specific virus detection in mosquitoes, which has p ...201526378568
entomological surveillance for flaviviruses at migratory bird stopover sites in hokkaido, japan, and a new insect flavivirus detected in aedes galloisi (diptera: culicidae).to investigate the possible spread of west nile virus (wnv) into japan, we carried out entomological surveillance for flaviviruses at migratory bird stopover sites in hokkaido, japan, during 2003-2006. a total of 3,826 mosquitoes, identified as 15 species in five genera, were collected and 2,465 of these were grouped into 123 pools that were assayed for cytopathic effects on mosquito and mammalian cell cultures and for flavivirus rna by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction using flavi ...201222308786
