The genus Flavivirus within the family Flaviviridae contains many arthropod-borne infectious agents of medical relevance like dengue virus (DENV), Zika virus (ZIKV), and West Nile virus (WNV), among others, that cause epi- demics of hemorrhagic fevers and encephalitis for which there are no antiviral treatments and effective vaccines available. Fluorescence imaging is a powerful and versatile research tool for the study of ﬂ aviviral diseases. This tool can be com- plemented with biochemical and molecular methods to gain insight into the mechanisms of ﬂ avivirus infection and immunity, in order to develop feasible prophylactic and therapeutic interventions to lower their impact on public health. Here we discuss the basics of the ﬂ uorescence imaging techniques currently employed in ﬂ avivirus research, including immuno ﬂ uorescence assay (IFA), ﬂ uorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), ﬂ uorescence-labeled viral particles, ﬂ uorescent labeling of cytopathic effect (CPE), subgenomic reporter replicons (SRRs)/reporter virus particles (RVPs), and cell-based molecular reporters (CBMRs). We also address the advantages of each application based on our own experience and included some of our protocols to facilitate its applications.
