Characterization of changes in metabolic pathways during dengue virus serotype 2 infection of the Aedes aegypti mosquito vector to identify control points for interrupting virus transmission
Dengue viruses (DENV) are mosquito-borne viruses that cause a wide range of acute symptoms from mild fever to lethal dengue shock syndrome in humans. DENV are transmitted primarily by Aedes aegypti (Ae. aegypti). These mosquitoes are widely distributed throughout tropical and subtropical areas around the world. Increasing globalization, urbanization and global warming are factors that enhance the spread of these vectors placing over 2.5 billion people at risk of contracting these viruses. Transmission of these viruses depends on their ability to infect, replicate and disseminate into several ...
