Vaccinia Virus – A Versatile Mammalian Expression Vector

  • Virus best known for it’s use as a vaccine for Smallpox, discovered by Edward Jenner in 1798
  • Double stranded DNA virus with large cloning capacity
  • Envelope is derived from the Trans-Golgi Network membrane
  • Recombinant proteins undergo normal post-translational modifications and trafficking and are subject to mammalian cell QC mechanisms


Vaccinex has developed propriety technology to:

  • Efficiently create large cDNA libraries in  Vaccinia Virus for mammalian expression
  • Fusion proteins to allow for direct incorporation of either IgG or multipass membrane proteins into the Vaccinia Virus membrane
