An evaluation of the susceptibility of eight mosquito species to Sindbis virus was conducted as a prelude to studies on the mechanisms of arbovirus infection in mosquitoes at the cellular and molecular level. was the most susceptible mosquito tested, with an ID of 2.42 log TCID. Considerably higher infectivity thresholds were observed with (4.41) and (4.46), but these species did show persistence of virus which may indicate multiplication. and became infected only at high doses and all showed reduced virus titers after 7 days post-infection. were refractory to infection at all doses tested.
