AAV Zika ORFs
To aid Zika virus research, Vigene has cloned and packaged each of the individual 14 Zika virus ORFs into AAV. The Zika ORFs are non-pathogenic and can safely be used for research purposes. Zika virus has gained attention in recent years due to its outbreaks and association with human neurological disorders. There are currently no approved therapies or vaccines, so there is an urgent need to develop strategies that inhibit viral replication. In order to develop these strategies, it is imperative that we gain a better understanding of the function of the proteins involved in the process.
