Aedes aegypti densovirus (AeDNV) is a small DNA virus that has been developed into an expression and transducing vector for mosquitoes [Afanasiev et al. (1994) Exp Parasitol 79: 322-339; Afanasiev et al. (1999) Virology 257: 62-72; Carlson et al. (2000) Insect Transgenesis: Methods and Applications (Handler, A.M. & James, A.A., eds), pp. 139-159.

Aedes aegypti densonucleosis virus (AeDNV) has two promoters that have been shown to be active by reporter gene expression analysis (B. N. Afanasiev, Y. V. Koslov, J. O. Carlson, and B. J. Beaty, Exp. Parasitol. 79:322-339, 1994). Northern blot analysis of cells infected with AeDNV revealed two transcripts 1,200 and 3,500 nucleotides in length that are(More)
Aedes densovirus (AeDNV)-based constructs that express green fluorescent protein (GFP) from either the P7 or the P61 promoter were made. The construct in which GFP protein was expressed as a fusion protein to the C-terminus of NS1 (NS1-GFP) showed the highest level of GFP expression. This hybrid NS1-GFP protein preserved the biological functions of the(More)
