Vertical transmission of St. Louis encephalitis (SLE) virus to F1 larval progeny was demonstrated in 8 species of mosquitoes which occur in Florida: Culex quinquefasciatus, Cx. nigripalpus, Cx. salinarius, Cx. restuans, Cx. opisthopus, Anopheles quadrimaculatus, An. albimanus, and Aedes taeniorhynchus. Relatively high rates of such transmission were observed in Ae. taeniorhynchus and vertical transmission to F1 adult progeny and venereal transmission from males to females also were demonstrated… Expand
Vertical Transmission of Zika Virus in Aedes aegypti Mosquitoes
The results suggest that vertical transmission may provide a potential mechanism for the virus to survive during adverse conditions and is comparable to MFIRs reported for other flaviviruses in mosquitoes. Expand
Experimental and Natural Vertical Transmission of West Nile Virus by California Culex (Diptera: Culicidae) Mosquitoes
ABSTRACT Culex (Diptera: Culicidae) mosquitoes, the primary summer vectors of West Nile virus (family Flaviviridae, genus Flavivirus, WNV), also may serve as overwintering reservoir hosts.Expand
Vertical transmission of St. Louis encephalitis virus in Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae) in Córdoba, Argentina.
This is the first study to confirm experimental vertical transmission of SLEV in Cx. Expand
Vertical Transmission of West Nile Virus by Three California Culex (Diptera: Culicidae) Species
Three California Culex species previously identified as efficient laboratory vectors of West Nile (WN) virus were tested for their capability to vertically transmit WN virus, with no virus detected in 102 pools of 2,453 progeny from Cx. Expand
Transmission dynamics of an insect-specific flavivirus in a naturally infected Culex pipiens laboratory colony and effects of co-infection on vector competence for West Nile virus.
It is found that vertical transmission is the primary mechanism for persistence of CxFV in Cx. Expand
Evidence of Vertical Transmission of West Nile Virus in Field-Collected Mosquitoes
Infectious WNV was detected using virus isolation in field-collected male Aedes triseriatus Say and Culex salinarius Coquillett; these data represent the first field evidence of vertical transmission of WNV in Ae.triseriatus and Cx.salinarius. Expand
Vertical transmission of zika virus in Aedes albopictus
This is the first experimental evidence of offspring with vertically transmitted ZIKV initiating new horizontal transmission in Ae. Expand
Insect-specific flaviviruses from Culex mosquitoes in Colorado, with evidence of vertical transmission.
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.

Persistence and Amplification of St. Louis Encephalitis Virus in the Coachella Valley of California, 2000–2001
Early seroconversions by a sentinel chicken during February 2001 and a recaptured Gambel’s quail in April 2001 provided evidence for transmission during winter and spring when ambient temperatures averaged below 17°C, the threshold for SLE replication. Expand
West Nile Virus Mosquito Vectors in North America
Examination of vectorial capacity and the eco-epidemiology of West Nile virus mosquito vectors in four geographic regions of North America finds some of the unresolved questions remain unresolved, such as the role of non-Culex bridge vectors. Expand
