Experimental infection of six species of ixodid ticks with Dugbe virus (family Bunyaviridae, genus Nairovirus)



Experimental infection of six species of ixodid ticks with Dugbe virus (family Bunyaviridae, genus Nairovirus)



American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 40(4): 410-417



The vector potential of each of 6 species of colonized North American and African ixodid ticks was assessed by intracoelomic inoculation with Dugbe virus (IbAr 1792, 14th passage in suckling mouse brain) and viral titers were monitored after selected incubation periods. Persistence of Dugbe virus for <more or =>53 days in 5 species (Dermacentor andersoni, D. variabilis, Amblyomma americanum, Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, and R. sanguineus) indicates that infection occurred.
