Abstract: The mosquitoes Aedes aegypti (L.) and Ae. albopictus Skuse are the major vectors of dengue, Zika, yellow fever, and chikungunya viruses worldwide. Wolbachia, an endosymbiotic bacterium present in many insects, is being utilized in novel vector control strategies to manipulate mosquito life history and vector competence to curb virus transmission. Earlier studies have found that Wolbachia is commonly detected in Ae. albopictus but rarely detected in Ae. aegypti. In this study, we used a two‐step PCR assay to de… Show more

“…Through these analyses, we demonstrate conclusively that the LC population does not harbor Wolbachia . These results conflict with those from the original study (Kulkarni et al, ) and more recent tests by the authors where Wolbachia is at a high frequency (28/32, 87.5%) in the fourth laboratory generation (Jiannong Xu, personal communication). Although the reason for this conflicting result is unclear, our study emphasizes the need for independent evaluation of Wolbachia infections in A. aegypti .…”

“…These studies report variable infection frequencies in populations and identify infections from several Wolbachia supergroups. Most studies found that the infections detected were closely related to or identical to the w AlbB infection that occurs natively in Aedes albopictus (Balaji et al, ; Carvajal et al, ; Coon et al, ; Kulkarni et al, ), while other studies also detected Wolbachia from supergroups that do not normally occur within Diptera (Carvajal et al, ; Thongsripong et al, ). Most evidence is limited to molecular detection, and not all studies claim to have discovered an active infection.…”
