GMO characterization

GMO is a:
DNA Virus

Identity of the GMO:
R062 vaccine contains the live, cell-associated and genetically modified turkey herpes
virus (strain FC-126 of HVT), expressing the Fusion protein (F) encoding gene of
Newcastle disease virus (NDV) and the Haemagglutinin protein (HA) encoding gene of
Low Pathogenic Avian Influenza Virus subtype H9 (LPAIV H9).
The core construct of the R062 vaccine is the vaccine strain of Vectormune ND. This
vaccine strain is a genetically modified form of the parent strain FC-126 of HVT
containing one insert, the F protein of Newcastle Disease Virus. This GMO was
further modified by inserting the artificially synthesized LPAIV H9 consensus HA gene
between the SORF3 and the US2 genes of the HVT genome.
