Dynamics of infection in tick vectors and at the tick-host interface.

Abstract:

Tick-borne flaviviruses are common, widespread, and successfully adapted to their mode of transmission. Most tick vectors of flaviviruses are ixodid species. These ticks are characterized by a comparatively long life cycle, lasting several years, during which the infecting virus may be maintained from one developmental stage of the tick to the next. Hence ticks act as highly efficient reservoirs of flaviviruses. Many tick-borne flaviviruses are transmitted vertically, from adult to offspring,...
