Cytokine-expressing Oncolytic Vaccinia Virus Western Reserve (ΔE3L,ΔK3L), p7.9k-(hEPO) (CyOV-0170WQ)

This product is a hEPO encoding oncolytic vaccinia virus, which is based on VACV-WR with E3L and K3L double deleted.Protein E3 plays a role in the inhibition of multiple cellular antiviral responses activated by dsRNA, such as inhibition of PKR activation, apoptosis, and IFN-mediated antiviral activities. Protein K3 acts as a pseudosubstrate for EIF2AK2/PKR kinase. Inhibits therefore eIF-2-alpha phosphorylation by host EIF2AK2/PKR kinase and prevents protein synthesis shutoff.The double deletion of E3L and K3L with oncolytic-rendered modifications could enhance an immune response to a poxvirus vaccine.This product can be used in oncolytic virotherapy research and vaccinie application.

Information
Introduction This gene encodes a secreted, glycosylated cytokine composed of four alpha helical bundles. The encoded protein is mainly synthesized in the kidney, secreted into the blood plasma, and binds to the erythropoietin receptor to promote red blood cell production, or erythropoiesis, in the bone marrow. Expression of this gene is upregulated under hypoxic conditions, in turn leading to increased erythropoiesis and enhanced oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. Expression of this gene has also been observed in brain and in the eye, and elevated expression levels have been observed in diabetic retinopathy and ocular hypertension. Recombinant forms of the encoded protein exhibit neuroprotective activity against a variety of potential brain injuries, as well as antiapoptotic functions in several tissue types, and have been used in the treatment of anemia and to enhance the efficacy of cancer therapies.
