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. We used universal flavivirus primers to test pools of Culex mosquitoes for viral RNA. This 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 flavivirus, designated Calbertado virus (CLBOV), which has also been detected in… 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. Expand
Isolation of a Novel Insect-Specific Flavivirus from Culiseta melanura in the Northeastern United States.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis showed that this new virus represents a distinct evolutionary lineage that belongs to the classical ISF group, and is provisionally named Culiseta flavivirus on the basis of its host association with Cs. 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.
TLDR
It is found that vertical transmission is the primary mechanism for persistence of CxFV in Cx. Expand
Detection of a new insect flavivirus and isolation of Aedes flavivirus in Northern Italy
TLDR
This is the first study to report a high prevalence of flavivirus in Aedes albopictus populations from Northern Italy, to describe the seasonal activity and an isolation of the insect flavvirus Aedes flaviv virus in Europe, and to detect a new insect flaviviruses detected from Ae. Expand
Wide detection of Aedes flavivirus in north-eastern Italy--a European hotspot of emerging mosquito-borne diseases.
TLDR
A wide distribution of Aedes flavivirus (AeFV) in Aedes albopictus is detected, with higher infection prevalence in Trentino than inVeneto, and AeFV sequences found in Veneto showed a high percentage of similarity to those detected in Trentinos and to those previously reported in other areas of northern Italy. Expand
A novel insect-specific flavivirus replicates only in Aedes-derived cells and persists at high prevalence in wild Aedes vigilax populations in Sydney, Australia.
TLDR
Investigation of the diversity and prevalence of ISFs in Australian mosquitoes, samples from various regions were screened for flaviviruses by ELISA and RT-PCR and revealed PaRV had persisted in A. vigilax populations in Sydney, with 88% of pools positive. Expand
Distribution and phylogenetic analysis of Culex flavivirus in mosquitoes in China
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the geographic distribution of CxFV in China is widespread, but geographical boundaries to spread are apparent, and the findings suggest that C xFV can infect various mosquito species in nature. Expand
Guapiaçu virus, a new insect-specific flavivirus isolated from two species of Aedes mosquitoes from Brazil
TLDR
The genetic characterization of a novel putative dISFV, termed Guapiaçu virus (GUAPV), which did not replicate in tested mammalian cells, 3′UTR secondary structures duplication and codon usage index were similar to pathogenic flavivirus. Expand
Distribution and phylogenetic comparisons of a novel mosquito flavivirus sequence present in Culex tarsalis Mosquitoes from western Canada with viruses isolated in California and Colorado.
TLDR
The ecology and geographic range of Calbertado virus warrants further study because it may potentially influence transmission of mosquito-borne flaviviruses, including important human pathogens such as West Nile and Saint Louis encephalitis viruses. 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.
