author keywords: Cimex lectularius; Wolbachia; Endosymbiont; Cimicidae; Virus suppression; ssRNA
MeSH headings : Animals; Bedbugs / microbiology; Bedbugs / virology; Calicivirus, Feline / growth & development; Calicivirus, Feline / isolation & purification; Microbial Interactions; Viral Load; Wolbachia / growth & development
TL;DR: It is suggested that other mechanisms are involved in virus suppression within bed bugs, independent of the influence of Wolbachia, and the need for future research is underscore. (via Semantic Scholar)
