Experimental transmission to mice of Venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis virus, subtype ID, by the mosquito Psorophora confinnis



Experimental transmission to mice of Venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis virus, subtype ID, by the mosquito Psorophora confinnis



Biomedica, Revista del Instituto Nacional de Salud, Colombia 3(1/2): 10-14



Previous experiments showed that this mosquito of the family Culicidae was susceptible to infection with VEE alphavirus This paper reports transmission by the same mosquito species from experimentally infected hamsters and spiny rats (Proechimys hendei) to mice, though with a high threshold of infection.
