  • humans
  • However, hybrids feed on both birds and mammals and likely play an important role as a bridge vector in the epizootic transmission of the virus to humans and equids . (europa.eu)
  • Culex mosquitoes, which tend to thrive in stagnant water, contract the virus from infected birds and pass it along to humans through their bites. (ksn.com)
  • This illustration shows how the transmission of Wolbachia bacteria (in purple) from fruit flies to mosquitoes appears to block the transmission of viruses (in blue) to humans. (newswise.com)

  • outbreaks
  • In areas where yellow fever is common and vaccination is uncommon, early diagnosis of cases and immunization of large parts of the population is important to prevent outbreaks. (wikipedia.org)
  • genome
  • This means we're able to label different parts of the virus genome and track replication of its RNA inside the host insect. (newswise.com)
  • The coding region of the genome codes for three structural proteins and seven nonstructural (NS) proteins, proteins that are not incorporated into the structure of new viruses. (wikipedia.org)
  • The WNV genome is first translated into a polyprotein and later cleaved by virus and host proteases into separate proteins (i.e. (wikipedia.org)
  • vectors
  • As the impacts of disease and virus are devastating, the need to control the vectors in which they carried is prioritized. (wikipedia.org)
  • antiviral
  • Favipiravir, also known as T-705 or Avigan, is an experimental antiviral drug being developed by Toyama Chemical of Japan with activity against many RNA viruses. (wikipedia.org)

  • 17 people have either tested positive or are suspected of having the virus in Saskatchewan, and only one person has tested positive in Alberta.Saskatchewan has reported 826 cases of WNV plus three deaths. (wikipedia.org)
  • infectious
  • To explore the biological mechanisms behind pathogen blocking, Newton and colleagues designed a model system consisting of Wolbachia -infected fruit flies and the Sindbis virus, which is easier -- and safer -- to manipulate in the lab than infectious agents such as the Zika or West Nile viruses.

  • The rest of the virus is assembled along the endoplasmic reticulum and through the Golgi apparatus, and results in non-infectious immature virions. (wikipedia.org)

  • The virus was discovered in Uganda in 1937 and was first detected in North America in 1999. (wikipedia.org)
  • flaviviruses
  • Like most other flaviviruses, WNV is an enveloped virus, but has icosahedral symmetry. (wikipedia.org)
