Conclusions/significanceOur study shows that exposure to bites ofAe.albopictus orAe.aegypti evokes in mice species-specific IgG responses to al34k2 or ae34k2, respectively. Deeper understanding of duration of antibody response and validation in natural conditions of human exposure toAedes mosquitoes are certainly needed. However, our findings point to the al34k2 salivary protein as a promising potential candidate for the development of immunoassays to evaluate human exposure toAe.albopictus. This would be a step forward in the establishment of a serological toolbox for the simultaneous assessment of human exposure toAedes ...
