  • Heatwaves cause fluctuations in wMel Wolbachia densities and frequencies in Aedes aegypti. [Journal Article]
    PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2020; 14(1):e0007958Ross PA, Axford JK, … Hoffmann AA
  • Aedes aegypti mosquitoes infected with the wMel strain of Wolbachia are being released into natural mosquito populations in the tropics as a way of reducing dengue transmission. High temperatures adversely affect wMel, reducing Wolbachia density and cytoplasmic incompatibility in some larval habitats that experience large temperature fluctuations. We monitored the impact of a 43.6°C heatwave on t…
  • Releasing Wolbachia-infected Aedes aegypti to prevent the spread of dengue virus: A mathematical study. [Journal Article]
    Infect Dis Model 2020; 5:142-160Zhang H, Lui R
  • Wolbachia is a bacterium that is present in 60% of insects but it is not generally found in Aedes aegypti, the primary vector responsible for the transmission of dengue virus, Zika virus, and other human diseases caused by RNA viruses. Wolbachia has been shown to stop the growth of a variety of RNA viruses in Drosophila and in mosquitoes. Wolbachia-infected Ae. aegypti have both reproductive adva…
  • Identification and molecular characterization of Wolbachia strains in natural populations of Aedes albopictus in China. [Journal Article]
    Parasit Vectors 2020; 13(1):28Hu Y, Xi Z, … Liu Q
  • CONCLUSIONS: The natural prevalence of Wolbachia infections in China was much lower than in other countries or regions. The phylogenetic relationships among Wolbachia spp. isolated from field-collected Ae. albopictus reflected the presence of dominant and stable strains. However, wAlbB (464/465) and Wolbachia strains did not form a clade with Wolbachia strains from other mosquitoes. Moreover, lower densities of Wolbachia in regions with only imported dengue cases suggest a relationship between fluctuations in Wolbachia density in field-collected Ae. albopictus and the potential for dengue invasion into these regions.
  • Modeling and control of mosquito-borne diseases with Wolbachia and insecticides. [Journal Article]
    Theor Popul Biol 2020Li Y, Liu X
  • Mosquitoes cause more human suffering than any other organism. It is estimated that over one million people worldwide die from mosquito-borne diseases every year. With the continuous efforts of many researchers, Wolbachia gets more and more attention due to its characteristics of maternal transmission in mosquito population and it may cause cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI) which makes healthy fem…
