Abstract

Transovarial transmission of two strains of yellow fever virus was demonstrated in three colonized geographical strains of following infection by intrathoracic inoculation. Infected progeny were detected in F offspring from only the first three ovarian cycles (OVC). The overall minimum filial infection rate for the first three OVC was 1:596; rates were lower in the second and third OVC. Virus survived in eggs for longer than 4 months and was recovered from progeny of three immersions of first OVC eggs. Infected progeny averaged a longer time to pupation than noninfected siblings. Transovarial transmission of virus was also demonstrated in first OVC progeny of .
