Mosquitoes are involved in the transmission and maintenance of several viral diseases with significant health impact. Biosurveillance efforts have also revealed insect-specific viruses, observed to cocirculate with pathogenic strains. This report describes the findings of flavivirus and rhabdovirus screening, performed in eastern Thrace and Aegean region of Anatolia during 2016, including and expanding on locations with previously-documented virus activity. A mosquito cohort of 1545 individuals… Expand

Arboviral screening of invasive Aedes species in northeastern Turkey: West Nile virus circulation and detection of insect-only viruses
TLDR
Invasive Aedes mosquitoes are established in certain locations of northeastern Turkey and the role of these species in WNV circulation in the region is conclusively shown. Expand
Vertical transmission of naturally occurring Bunyamwera and insect-specific flavivirus infections in mosquitoes from islands and mainland shores of Lakes Victoria and Baringo in Kenya
TLDR
These insect-specific flaviviruses (ISFVs), which are presumably non-pathogenic to vertebrates, were found in known medically important arbovirus and malaria vectors and suggest that they are naturally maintained within mosquito populations by vertical transmission, even in the absence of vertebrate hosts. Expand
Emerging Trends in the Epidemiology of West Nile and Usutu Virus Infections in Southern Europe
TLDR
This mini-review provides an update on the epidemiology of WNV and USUV infections in Southern Europe within a multidisciplinary “One Health” context and shows that USUV circulation is more common than WNV in some endemic regions. Expand
First record of West Nile Virus detection inside wild mosquitoes in Khartoum capital of Sudan using PCR
TLDR
This study represents first record of WNV inside wild mosquitoes in Sudan and PCR technique provided reliable information because specific primer-probe sets were used for the detection of the virus. Expand
Vector-borne Viruses in Turkey: A Systematic Review and Bibliography.
TLDR
Turkey serves as a natural hub for the dissemination of vector-borne viruses and provides many suitable habitats with diverse ecologies for introduction and establishment of new pathogens, and detection of novel viruses in mosquitoes, sandflies and ticks from several regions is of particular interest. Expand
Metatranscriptomic analysis identifies different viral-like sequences in two neotropical Mansoniini mosquito species.
TLDR
All Mansoninii viruses investigated through phylogenetic analysis are closely related to insect-specific viruses found in other mosquito species although with considerable divergence at the amino acid level, suggesting that the authors have detected new viral lineages. Expand
Wolbachia diversity and cytoplasmic incompatibility patterns in Culex pipiens populations in Turkey
TLDR
A high diversity of wPip and CI properties in Cx. Expand
Exploiting insect-specific viruses as a novel strategy to control vector-borne disease.
TLDR
A greater understanding of ISVs' basic biology is required, including their species range, ability to be maintained and transmitted in native and non-native vector hosts, and the effect of infection on a range of pathogens. Expand
2021 Taxonomic update of phylum Negarnaviricota (Riboviria: Orthornavirae), including the large orders Bunyavirales and Mononegavirales.
TLDR
The updated taxonomy of Negarnaviricota is presented as now accepted by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV). Expand

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
West African Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes harbor a taxonomically diverse virome including new insect-specific flaviviruses, mononegaviruses, and totiviruses.
TLDR
Using metagenomics sequencing to search for viruses in adult Anopheles mosquitoes collected from Liberia, Senegal, and Burkina Faso, a number of virus and virus-like sequences are identified from mosquito midgut contents, including 14 coding-complete genome segments and 26 partial sequences that define new viruses in the order Mononegavirales, and the families Flaviviridae, and Totiviraceae.

Discovery of flavivirus-derived endogenous viral elements in Anopheles mosquito genomes supports the existence of Anopheles-associated insect-specific flaviviruses
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of the two newly described EVEs support the existence of a distinct clade of Anopheles-associated ISFs, and provide in silico and in vivo evidence of transcriptionally active, flavivirus-derived endogenous viral elements (EVEs), consistent with a shared evolutionary history between flaviviruses and Anophele mosquitoes. Expand
Arboviral surveillance of field-collected mosquitoes reveals circulation of West Nile virus lineage 1 strains in Eastern Thrace, Turkey.
TLDR
The findings indicate the circulation of WNV lineage 1 strains in potential vector species and provide an epidemiological link between WNV activity in mosquitoes and vertebrate infections. Expand
A novel rhabdovirus, related to Merida virus, in field-collected mosquitoes from Anatolia and Thrace
TLDR
A novel rhabdovirus that is genetically related to the recently described Merida virus via next-generation sequencing in a mosquito pool from Thrace is identified, tentatively named “Merida-like virus Turkey”. Expand

TLDR
These isolates comprise the first fully characterized insect-specific flaviviruses in Turkey, and their impact on West Nile virus circulation, which is also endemic in the study region, remains to be explored. 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.
