In fact, the species has enjoyed a 74-fold increase in the number of surviving offspring since 2013, the result of a rapid genetic adaptation that has protected them from the deadly densovirus
Markedly reduced severity of Dengue virus infection in mosquito cell cultures persistently infected with Aedes albopictus densovirus
Recombinase polymerase amplification combined with a lateral flow dipstick for discriminating between infectious Penaeus styiirosths densovirus
and virus-related sequences in shrimp genome.
At least 44 fire ant natural enemies have been identified in South America: Pseudacteon fly parasitoids (23 species), microsporidia (Vairimorpha invictae and Kneallhazia solenopsae),fungus (Myrmecomyces annellisae), nematodes (Allomermis solenopsi, Tetradonema solenopsis, and Hexamerma spp.), eucharitid wasps (5 species), scarab beetle (Martineziana dutertrei), strepsipteran (Caenocholax fenyesi), parasitic ant (Solenopsis daguerrei), densovirus
(Solenopsis invicta densovirus
, SiDNV), and RNA viruses (3 viruses) (Wojcik et al.
Induction of apoptosis in densovirus
infected Aedes aegypti mosquitoes.
(In the last few years, for example, cricket paralysis densovirus
, which is harmless to humans and other creatures but fatal to Acheta domesticus, the common brown house cricket, has wreaked havoc on the commercial cricket industry in the U.S.)
Some DNVs typically infect during the larval stage and are lethal, however, in this study researchers suggest that the Anopheles gambiae densovirus
(AgDNV) may infect at low levels during early life and replicate to lethal levels at adult age.
The virus Periplaneta fuliginosa densovirus
has been proposed for the control of the smoky-brown cockroach, P.
Other pathogens, like Densovirus
, do not appear to affect vector fecundity when transmitted by this mechanism (40).
The JcDNV vector came from a parvovirus, Junonia coenia densovirus
, which infects the common buckeye butterfly, Junonia coenia.
