 Dengue is an acute viral disease transmitted by the Aedesaegypti mosquito which is present in most tropical urban areas of the world. There are four antigenically distinct serotypes, designated dengue-1 (DEN-1), dengue-2 (DEN-2), dengue-3 (DEN-3) and dengue-4 virus (DEN-4). In this study, we determined the serotypes of dengue viruses isolated in Guatemala in 1995–1998, and found that DEN-3 viruses appeared in 1995 and became predominant in the following three years. We then sequenced cDNAs… CONTINUE READING
