In this article, we document the first isolation of a replication-competent deformed wing virus from Vespa crabro in Italy. Although the virus has never been isolated from this insect, the sequence of this virus shows a strong sequence homology with isolates obtained from Apis mellifera, which is considered its natural host.

Abstract

In this article, we document the first isolation of a replication-competent deformed wing virus from Vespa crabro in Italy. Although the virus has never been isolated from this insect, the sequence of this virus shows a strong sequence homology with isolates obtained from Apis mellifera, which is considered its natural host.
