Abstract: BACKGROUND Zika has emerged as a new public health threat after the explosive epidemic in Brazil in 2015. It is an arbovirus transmitted mainly by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. The knowledge of physiological, behavioural and biological features in virus-infected vectors may help the understanding of arbovirus transmission dynamics and elucidate their influence in vector capacity.OBJECTIVES We aimed to investigate the effects of Zika virus (ZIKV) infection in the behaviour of Ae. aegypti females by analysing the lo… Show more

“…Our previous studies have shown that ZIKV infection can modulate Ae. aegypti females' locomotor activity but did not change significantly the fecundity and fertility neither in the second or third GCs when the female egg laying is clustered 30 . Here we refined our methodology focusing on understand, comparatively, the effect of infection by CHIKV and ZIKV in fecundity and fertility of Ae.…”

“…Changes with DENV clearly affect the physiology and impact behavior in A. aegypti due in part to the infection of olfactory organs that changes expression levels of OBP10 and OBP22 (odorant-binding proteins) [46]. Whether ZIKV affects fecundity or locomotor activity remains controversial [47, 48]. …”

“…Unfortunately, the description of arbovirus-induced behavioural changes is limited. WNV infected Culex pipiens mosquitoes showed less frequent host-seeking behaviour [502], and decreased mobility of Aedes aegypti has been reported during ZIKV and DENV infection [503,504]. Furthermore, altered bloodfeeding behaviour, including more frequent probing, has been reported in dengue virus (DENV), La Crosse virus and Sindbis virus (SINV) infected Ae.…”
