Viral replication in Ae. albopictus SARBA after infection. We exposed mosquitoes to an infectious blood-meal containing CHIKV, DENV-2 or WNV at a titer of 108 MID50/ml. At days 0, 3, 6, 10 and 14 pi, RNA was extracted from 5 individual mosquitoes and the number of viral RNA copies was assessed by quantitative RT-PCR.
