Propagation of 3 relatively solvent-resistant arboviruses in Singh's Aedes albopictus and A. aegypti cell lines.

Autor(es): Buckley S M

Resumo: Propagation in Singh's Aedes cell lines was attempted with 3 relatively solvent-resistant arboviruses: Irituia of the Changuinola serogroup, presumed to be transmitted by phlebotomine flies; Palyam of the Palyam serogroup, mosquitoborne; and Lebombo, serologically ungrouped, also mosquitoborne. All 3 viruses multiplied in A. albopictus cells and in A. albopictus carrier cultures; only Irituia virus also multiplied in A. aegypti cells. These results, in combination with earlier studies, support an hypothesis that all mosquito-borne arboviruses, whether relatively resistant or sensitive to solvents, are able to multiply in 1 or both of Singh's Aedes cell lines; and that, of the arboviruses isolated from ticks and phlebotomine flies, those relatively solvent-resistant are able to multiply in 1 or both cell lines whereas those solvent-sensitive are unable to grow in either. The A. albopictus cell line appears to be the more sensitive to infection.
