Reporter-encoding Oncolytic Vaccinia Virus Western Reserve (ΔE3L,ΔK3), pSL-(GFP) (RepOV-0087WQ)

This product is a GFP 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 The green fluorescent protein (GFP) is a protein composed of 238 amino acid residues (26.9 kDa) that exhibits bright green fluorescence when exposed to light in the blue to ultraviolet range. Although many other marine organisms have similar green fluorescent proteins, GFP traditionally refers to the protein first isolated from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria. The GFP from A. victoria has a major excitation peak at a wavelength of 395 nm and a minor one at 475 nm. Its emission peak is at 509 nm, which is in the lower green portion of the visible spectrum. The fluorescence quantum yield (QY) of GFP is 0.79. The GFP from the sea pansy (Renilla reniformis) has a single major excitation peak at 498 nm. GFP makes for an excellent tool in many forms of biology due to its ability to form internal chromophore without requiring any accessory cofactors, gene products, or enzymes / substrates other than molecular oxygen.
