Antiviral protection and the importance of Wolbachia density and tissue tropism in Drosophila simulans
Applied and Environmental Microbiology 78(19):6922–6929
Wolbachia density and distribution in host tissues has been suggested to be an important factor for mediating antiviral protection in both mosquitoes and flies. This study demonstrated that antiviral protection was correlated with wAu Wolbachia density.
