Abstract: Mosquito-borne diseases having the greatest impact on human health are typically prevalent in the tropical belt of the world. However, these diseases are conquering temperate regions, raising the question of the role of temperature on their dynamics and expansion. Temperature is one of the most significant abiotic factors affecting, in many ways, insect vectors and the pathogens they transmit. Here, we debate the veracity of this claim by synthesizing current knowledge on the effects of temperature on arboviru… Show more

“…In addition to high morbidity and mortality rates from malaria and dengue fever, recent epidemics of Zika, West Nile and chikungunya have put nearly 4 billion people at risk across countries around the world 1 4 . Due to the role mosquitoes serve in the transmission of these diseases and nuisance created by the mosquito bites, it is critical to study the factors that influence growth and abundance of mosquito populations 5 , 6 .…”

“…Development of complex resistance mechanisms to insecticides through metabolic detoxification or decreased sensitivity of target proteins has contributed to an emergence or resurgence of mosquito-borne diseases [2]. Additionally, it has been reported that environmental changes could also influence the geographical distribution of mosquitoes, their vectorial capacity, and the dynamics of transmission of deadly pathogens through blood feeding [3][4][5][6]. Regardless of significant progress in elucidating mosquito metabolism at the molecular level, many research questions have been raised in relation to how changes in metabolite profile and/or abundance can reveal new clues into how mosquitoes regulate different metabolic processes in response to internal and external variations.…”

“…aegypti mosquitoes is optimized at 29C with a thermal range of 22.7C-34.7C (25). Low ambient temperatures, that are well within the range for survival of Aedes species, are known to inhibit arboviral replication and transmission (12,36). However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the effects of temperature on virus replication efficiency and vector competence remain unclear.…”

“…However, the exact mechanisms of how temperature shapes arboviral transmission are rarely elucidated. Temperature can either affect virus replication directly, or indirectly by altering mosquito physiology (12), immunity (13,14), and cellular processes (15). Even though arboviruses evolved to replicate across a wide range of temperatures, from within invertebrate vectors to febrile mammalian and avian hosts, temperature can also modify virus replication.…”
