Abstract

Summary

The imaginal discs of fourth instar mosquito larvae () and the male and female gonads of diapausing pupae were cultivated . Mosquito larval tissues cultivated in a basic medium, designed for insect tissue culture, yielded a very low percentage of cultures with primary outgrowth. The incorporation into this medium of 10% chick embryo extract increased considerably the number of positive cultures. The incorporation into the medium of extracts from homologous insects had no beneficial effect on growth of tissues from either insect. The cells from the imaginal discs of mosquito larvae supported the proliferation of West Nile virus, whereas the cells from the gonads did not.
