Detection of virus-specific siRNAs in Aag2 cells (A) and Ae. aegypti (Higgs White Eyes) mosquitoes (B). Monolayers of Aag2 cells were mock infected or infected with TE/3'2J, TE/3'2J/GFP, or TE/3'2J/B2 virus at MOI = 0.01. Mosquitoes were intrathoracically inoculated with cell culture medium from TE/3'2J, TE/3'2J/GFP, or TE/3'2J/B2 virus. At indicated times post infection, total RNA was isolated and probed using an E1-specific riboprobe for virus-derived siRNA. Ethidium bromide-stained ribosomal RNA below each blot serves as a loading control. Time in hours post infection is noted below ribosomal RNA controls. Arrows indicate position of 25 and 19 nucleotide markers.
