Abstract:

Two genetic markers of Venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis virus manifested upon multiplication of the virus in Aedes aegypti mosquitoes and directly related to each other are described qualittative amplification of the virus in mosquitoes and capacity to penetrate into the salivary glands and to be transmitted by bite. These genetic markers are very closely related to genetic markers manifested in virus multiplication in mice pathogenicity after intracerebral and intraperitoneal inoculation and viremia levels.
