Zika Envelope-(6His) Viral Like Particles


SKU: VLP005 Category:


Zika virions are comprised of an envelope and a nucleocapsid. The structural proteins include a capsid (C) protein, a glycoprotein precursor (preM) which is split into the Pr protein and the M protein, and an envelope (E) protein.

Zika Envelope  (click to see its protein sequence) Viral Like Particles was packaged in HEK293T cells using our proprietary technology. It is the replication-incompetent particles in which the Zika Envelope (with 6His-tag at its C-terminal) was pseudo-typed as the lentiviral particles’ surface envelope protein.  [Note: This VLP has the Zika Envelope antigen expressed on the particle’s surface.  If you want to over-express the Zika Envelope antigen in your desired cell types, please use lentivirus product, CAT#: LVP1404-PBS.]

This VLP packaged a non-sense sequence (Null) as the particle’s virion genomic material, to maintain the intact of the particles.


Zika Envelope was assembled as surface antigens which can be used as the ready to use Zika Envelope antigen, or for  raising the specific antibodies, for the validation of anti-Zika Envelope antibodies, in vaccine development and other validation assays. This VLP can also be detected by the anti-C-terminal 6His-tag antibody.

The VLP’s titer was measured via ELISA P24 assay. Every single particle assembled many Zika Envelope molecules at its surface. See more details in Product Manual.

Amount: 200ul/vial at 1×108 VP/ml.
