GMO characterization

GMO is a:
DNA Virus

Identity of the GMO:
Genus: Orthopoxvirus
Species: Vaccinia virus (VV)

The GMO is a viral suspension of the recombinant virus JX-594. JX-594 is a non-integrative, replicative, propagative, recombinant VV derived from the commonly used commercial vaccine Wyeth strain. 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.
