transovarial transmission of yellow fever virus in stegomyia mosquitoes.transovarial transmission of two strains of yellow fever virus was demonstrated in three colonized geographical strains of aedes aegypti following infection by intrathoracic inoculation. infected progeny were detected in f1 offspring from only the first three ovarian cycles (ovc). the overall minimum filial infection rate for the first three ovc was 1:596; rates were loser in the second and third ovc. virus survived in eggs for longer than 4 months and was recovered from progeny of three immersi ...19806766282
horizontal gene transfer between wolbachia and the mosquito aedes aegypti.the evolutionary importance of horizontal gene transfer (hgt) from wolbachia endosymbiotic bacteria to their eukaryotic hosts is a topic of considerable interest and debate. recent transfers of genome fragments from wolbachia into insect chromosomes have been reported, but it has been argued that these fragments may be on an evolutionary trajectory to degradation and loss.200919154594
vertical transmission of zika virus in aedes aegypti mosquitoes.previous experimental studies have demonstrated that a number of mosquito-borne flavivirus pathogens are vertically transmitted in their insect vectors, providing a mechanism for these arboviruses to persist during adverse climatic conditions or in the absence of a susceptible vertebrate host. in this study, designed to test whether zika virus (zikv) could be vertically transmitted, female aedes aegypti and aedes albopictus were injected with zikv, and their f1 adult progeny were tested for zikv ...201627573623
human impacts have shaped historical and recent evolution in aedes aegypti, the dengue and yellow fever mosquito.although anthropogenic impacts are often considered harmful to species, human modifications to the landscape can actually create novel niches to which other species can adapt. these "domestication" processes are especially important in the context of arthropod disease vectors, where ecological overlap of vector and human populations may lead to epidemics. here, we present results of a global genetic study of one such species, the dengue and yellow fever mosquito, aedes aegypti, whose evolutionar ...201324111703
history of domestication and spread of aedes aegypti--a review.the adaptation of insect vectors of human diseases to breed in human habitats (domestication) is one of the most important phenomena in medical entomology. considerable data are available on the vector mosquito aedes aegypti in this regard and here we integrate the available information including genetics, behaviour, morphology, ecology and biogeography of the mosquito, with human history. we emphasise the tremendous amount of variation possessed by ae. aegypti for virtually all traits considere ...024473798
tsetse-wolbachia symbiosis: comes of age and has great potential for pest and disease control.tsetse flies (diptera: glossinidae) are the sole vectors of african trypanosomes, the causative agent of sleeping sickness in human and nagana in animals. like most eukaryotic organisms, glossina species have established symbiotic associations with bacteria. three main symbiotic bacteria have been found in tsetse flies: wigglesworthia glossinidia, an obligate symbiotic bacterium, the secondary endosymbiont sodalis glossinidius and the reproductive symbiont wolbachia pipientis. in the present rev ...201222835476
horizontally transferred genetic elements in the tsetse fly genome: an alignment-free clustering approach using batch learning self-organising map (blsom).tsetse flies (glossina spp.) are the primary vectors of trypanosomes, which can cause human and animal african trypanosomiasis in sub-saharan african countries. the objective of this study was to explore the genome of glossina morsitans morsitans for evidence of horizontal gene transfer (hgt) from microorganisms. we employed an alignment-free clustering method, that is, batch learning self-organising map (blsom), in which sequence fragments are clustered based on the similarity of oligonucleotid ...201628074180
global genetic diversity of aedes aegypti.mosquitoes, especially aedes aegypti, are becoming important models for studying invasion biology. we characterized genetic variation at 12 microsatellite loci in 79 populations of ae. aegypti from 30 countries in six continents, and used them to infer historical and modern patterns of invasion. our results support the two subspecies ae. aegypti formosus and ae. aegypti aegypti as genetically distinct units. ae. aegypti aegypti populations outside africa are derived from ancestral african popula ...201627671732
chromosome banding homologies in three species of aedes (stegomyia).the chromosome complements of the mosquitoes aedes aegypti, aedes mascarensis, and aedes albopictus, belonging to the subgenus stegomyia, gave a uniform response to the q-, h-, and r-banding techniques. of the three homomorphic chromosome pairs, only the shortest or sex pair (i) showed a consistent banding pattern. in the three species, a bright yellow intercalary band was present on one arm of both chromosomes of the sex pair after heat treatment and staining with acridine orange. the rest of t ...19862424581
