Abstract

The overwintering mechanism of bluetongue virus (BTV) has eluded researchers for many years. It was recently proposed that ovine gamma delta T-cells may become persistently infected with BTV, and serve as a reservoir for infection of naive vectors in the next transmission season. Since cattle are...

Abstract

Two cell lines, ABADRL-Cs-W3 (W3) and ABADRL-Cs-W8A (W8), were developed from a field population of Culicoides sonorensis. The cell lines were characterized by isozyme phenotyping and the ability to support the replication of bluetongue virus (BLU) and epizootic haemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV)...

Abstract

Bluetongue virus (BTV) is transmitted to sheep, cattle and other ruminants by Culicoides spp. of biting midges. Cell lines have been developed from Culicoides sonorensis; however, techniques to detect and quantitate viable virus directly in these insect cells are lacking. In situ immune infrared...

Abstract

Bluetongue virus (BTV) infects sheep, cattle and other ruminants and is transmitted by Culicoides spp. of biting midges. Virus is typically isolated and characterized by infection of susceptible vertebrate cells that undergo detectable and measurable cytopathic effects. Cell lines derived from C....

Abstract

Vectorial capacity of C. sonorensis for the transmission of bluetongue (BLU) virus was examined at a dairy in southern California, USA from January 1995 to December 1997. Insects were collected one to two times per week in five CDC-type suction traps (without light) baited with CO2 at a constant...
