Metagenomic analysis of Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus mosquitoes from Grenada, West Indies

Abstract: The mosquitoes Aedes aegypti (Linnaeus, 1762) (Diptera: Culicidae) and Culex quinquefasciatus Say, 1823 (Diptera: Culicidae) are two major vectors of arthropod-borne pathogens in Grenada, West Indies. As conventional vector control methods present many challenges, alternatives are urgently needed. Manipulation of mosquito microbiota is emerging as a field for the development of vector control strategies. Critical to this vector control approach is knowledge of the microbiota of these mosquitoes and finding can… Show more

“…Interestingly, contrasted abundances of Serratia and Pseudomonas genera were also found in adult A. aegypti from the Caribbean island of Grenada [ 88 ] but further studies using a standardized methodology would be required to assess their natural variability in mosquito populations across the Caribbean. Bacteria such as Serratia marcescens have been found to increase the susceptibility of A. aegypti females for dengue virus, while Pseudomonas rhodesiae can inhibit La Crosse virus replication in Aedes albopictus cells [ 89 , 90 ].…”

“…This includes mosquitoes within Aedes sp., Anopheles sp., and Culex sp. ( Crotti et al, 2009 ; Freece et al, 2014 ; Ramos-Nino et al, 2020 ). Asaia is among the numerically dominant bacterial populations that colonize mosquitoes as assessed by sequencing surveys ( Chouaia et al, 2010 ; Damiani et al, 2010 ) and can be found in larval and adult mosquitoes and multiple tissues (e.g., the adult gut, testes, ovaries, and salivary glands; Favia 2007 , 2008 ; Mancini, 2018 ).…”
