    Mosquitoes can be infected with a variety of RNA viruses. Recently,Zhu et al. demonstrated that human microRNA hsa-miR-150-5p is acquired by mosquitoes during blood meals and protects the Dengue virus by downregulation of chymotrypsin AaCT-1 mRNA. This finding suggests the use of microRNA antagomirs as an antiviral approach in mosquitoes. Copyright © 2022 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
