Table 1 WNV titer in pooled mosquitoes from two populations (Vero Beach vs Gainesville) of Cx. quinquefasciatus

From: Transcriptomics of differential vector competence: West Nile virus infection in two populations of Culex pipiens quinquefasciatus linked to ovary development

Population Initial dose in bloodmeal (log PFU/ml) Freshly fed (log PFU/ml) 5 days post infection (log PFU/ml)
CQV (Vero Beach) 5.3 3.7 5.4
CQG (Gainesville) 5.3 3.9 5.2
  1. Titers were determined in mosquitoes (n = 6) that were either freshly fed or collected 5 days post-infection. WNV titer was also determined in the blood that was provided to the mosquitoes.
