This chapter reviews the progress made in the past few years on antiviral defence mechanisms in Drosophila melanogaster, and discusses the relevance of these findings for our understanding of the complex interaction of viruses with their invertebrate or mammalian hosts. Topics covered include models of Drosophila virus infection, Drosophila immune response against viruses, antiviral defences in other insect or invertebrate species, and comparison with mammalian antiviral defences.

Keywords:   Drosophila melanogaster, insect immunity, virus infection, immune response, antiviral defence
