New microRNA Data Offers Clues on Controlling Dengue Virus | GenomeWeb

A team of Australian researchers have reported new data on the role of a specific microRNA in blocking dengue replication in the mosquito Aedes aegypti, providing new insights into how infection by the virus may be combatted through management of its primary vector.

Dengue virus, or DENV, is a principle cause of a potentially lethal hemorrhagic fever and is primarily transmitted by female mosquitos. With no specific antiviral treatments or preventative vaccines available, controlling mosquitos has emerged as a key strategy to prevent infection.
