DNA Virus

Identity of the GMO:
Genus: Orthopoxvirus

JX-594 differs by three genetic modifications from the wild type Wyeth strain: 1) disruption of the viral thymidine kinase (TK) gene by, 2) insertion of the human granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (hGM-CSF) gene and 3) insertion of the lacZ gene.
