Table 1 DENV-2 infection rates (%) for replicate A tissues of w Mel.F and Wildtype mosquitoes

From: Effect of repeat human blood feeding on Wolbachia density and dengue virus infection in Aedes aegypti

Blood feeding status Salivary glands infections (N) Midguts infections (N) Body infections (N)
w Mel.F Wildtype w Mel.F Wildtype w Mel.F Wildtype
Unfed 23 (22) 83 (24) 32 (22) 96 (24) 22 (22) 83 (24)
Fed 1x 8 (24) 85 (20) 13 (24) 95 (20) 8 (24) 85 (20)
Fed 2x 0 (23)* 54 (24) 30 (23) 58 (24)** 0 (23)* 54 (24)
  1. Fisher’s exact tests: *Fed 2x v Unfed, P < 0.05; **Fed 2x v Unfed and Fed 2x v Fed 1x, P < 0.05. Comparisons were done between treatment groups within mosquito lines.
