Susceptibility of different Drosophila melanogaster DGRP lines to three sigma viruses.

We infected 32 lines from the Drosophila Genetic Reference Panel (DGRP) that were susceptible for both p62 (Ref2P) and CHKov (n=11 lines), were resistant for CHKov only (n=13 lines), or were resistant for both genes (n=8 lines) with DMelSV, DAffSV and DObsSV. No lines in the panel were resistant for p62 only. We infected a mean of 18 flies per line (range = 3-22).


ref2p_chkov coding as follows
("0_0", "0_1", "1_1") == ("Both sus", "Ref2P susceptible CHKov resistant", "Both resistant")
