Preliminary Observations on Growth of Arboviruses in a Newly Established Line of Mosquito Cell (Culex quinquefasciatusSay)
During the past two years several hundred attempts have been made by the author to establish continuous cell lines from various mosquitoes of the Culex tritaeniorhynchus complex of Taiwan, but all resulted in failures. Attempts were next directed toward the establishment of cell lines from ovarian tissue of Culex quinquefasciatus and were successful. This report describes the development of a cell line from that source, and the susceptibility of the cells to 9 arboviruses.
