To date, insect-specific flaviviruses (ISFs) have only been isolated from mosquitoes and increasing evidence suggests that ISFs may affect the transmission of pathogenic flaviviruses. To investigate the diversity and prevalence of ISFs in Australian mosquitoes, samples from various regions were screened for flaviviruses by ELISA and RT-PCR. Thirty-eight pools of Aedes vigilax from Sydney in 2007 yielded isolates of a novel flavivirus, named Parramatta River virus (PaRV). Sequencing of the viral… Expand
A New Clade of Insect-Specific Flaviviruses from Australian <italic toggle='yes'>Anopheles</italic> Mosquitoes Displays Species-Specific Host Restriction
Flaviviruses are arthropod-borne viruses found worldwide and are responsible for significant human and veterinary diseases, including dengue, Zika, and West Nile fever. Some flaviviruses are insectExpand
Improved detection of flaviviruses in Australian mosquito populations via replicative intermediates.
TLDR
This study demonstrates the utility of anti-dsRNA monoclonal antibodies for identifying viral replication in insect and vertebrate cell systems and highlights a unique characteristic of flavivirus replication. Expand
A New Orbivirus Isolated from Mosquitoes in North-Western Australia Shows Antigenic and Genetic Similarity to Corriparta Virus but Does Not Replicate in Vertebrate Cells
TLDR
A new virus is detected from mosquito populations of northern Australia that shares genomic sequence similarities to Corriparta virus and did not replicate in several vertebrate cell lines that were permissive to CORV, suggesting that PLV has evolved to have a very restricted host range, indicative of a mosquito-only life cycle.

Co-circulation of West Nile virus and distinct insect-specific flaviviruses in Turkey
TLDR
The authors identified West Nile virus and several distinct insect-specific flaviviruses during an extensive biosurveillance study of mosquitoes in various regions of Turkey in 2014 and 2015, with an unprecedented genetic diversity. Expand
A newly discovered flavivirus in the yellow fever virus group displays restricted replication in vertebrates
A novel flavivirus, provisionally named Bamaga virus (BgV), was isolated from Culex annulirostris mosquitoes collected from northern Australia. Phylogenetic analysis of the complete nucleotideExpand
A newly discovered flavivirus in the yellow fever virus group displays restricted replication in vertebrates.
TLDR
The results indicate that BgV is an evolutionary divergent member of the YFV group of flaviviruses, and represents a novel system to study mechanisms of virus host-restriction and transmission. Expand
A New Clade of Insect-Specific Flaviviruses from Australian Anopheles Mosquitoes Displays Species-Specific Host Restriction
TLDR
A genetically divergent group of insect-specific flaviviruses from Anopheles mosquitoes that do not replicate in arthropod cell lines or heterologous Anophele species, exhibiting unprecedented specialization for their host species is reported, representing a significant advance in knowledge of mosquito-borne flavivirus ecology, host restriction, and evolution.

The Discovery of Arthropod-Specific Viruses in Hematophagous Arthropods: An Open Door to Understanding the Mechanisms of Arbovirus and Arthropod Evolution?
TLDR
This review focuses specifically on arthropod viruses in hematophagous arthropods, a recently recognized and obviously important virus group that has genomes analogous to viruses in various families that include arboviruses and nonarbovirus. Expand
Antigenic Characterization of New Lineage II Insect-Specific Flaviviruses in Australian Mosquitoes and Identification of Host Restriction Factors
TLDR
The data are the first to uncover the mechanisms that restrict the growth of Lin II ISFs in vertebrate cells and provides new insights into the evolution of these viruses and the mechanisms associated with host switching that may allow new mosquito-borne viral diseases to emerge. Expand
Molecular detection and identification of Culex flavivirus in mosquito species from Jeju, Republic of Korea
TLDR
This is the first study reporting the prevalence of CxFV in Culex Pipiens (Cx. pipiens) host in the Jeju province, which can create possible interaction with other flaviviruses causing human and animal diseases. Expand

A New Insect-Specific Flavivirus from Northern Australia Suppresses Replication of West Nile Virus and Murray Valley Encephalitis Virus in Co-infected Mosquito Cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that prior infection of cultured mosquito cells with PCV suppressed subsequent replication of the medically significant West Nile and Murray Valley encephalitis viruses by 10–43 fold, suggesting that superinfection exclusion can occur between ISFs and vertebrate-infecting flaviviruses despite their high level of genetic diversity.

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the complete coding sequence showed that LAMV represented a distinct lineage related to the Aedes sp.-transmitted human pathogenic flaviviruses, similarly to the newly described Nounané virus, a flavivirus from Africa. Expand

Results from viral screening, and cell culture and molecular identification of the infected mosquitoes are presented, supporting previous suggestions of the existence of a large number of unsampled flaviviruses and elucidating the mechanism by which flaviviral sequences may have integrated into mosquito genomes.

Phylogenetic analyses revealed that CxFV is closely related to the insect flaviviruses associated with Aedes mosquitoes, Cell fusing agent (CFA) and Kamiti River virus (KRV). Expand
Insect-specific flaviviruses from Culex mosquitoes in Colorado, with evidence of vertical transmission.
TLDR
Mosquitoes were collected in Colorado during 2006 and 2007 to examine spatial and seasonal patterns of risk for exposure to Culex vectors and West Nile virus, which led to the detection and subsequent isolation of two insect-specific flaviviruses: CuleX flavivirus (CxFV), which was first described from Japan, and a novel insect flaviv virus, designated Calbertado virus (CLBOV, which has also been detected in California and Canada.

TLDR
Virus characterization, including phylogenetic analysis of the complete coding sequence, confirmed HANKV as a member of the “insect-specific” flavivirus (ISF) group and is the first member of this group isolated from northern Europe, and therefore the first northern European ISF for which thecomplete coding sequence has been determined.
