Kaeng Khoi virus (KKV), PSC-19 was isolated from pooled liver and fat tissue from bats (Tadarida plicata) collected in Kaeng Khoi District, Thailand, in 1969.

KKV species have been isolated from bats (Tadarida plicata and Chaeriphone plicata) as well as bedbugs (Stricticimex parvus and Cimex insuetus). KKV is of potential public health concern, as the virus displays higher pathogenicity in bats and mice than is normally associated with Orthobunyavirus species, and neutralizing antibodies have been found in the sera of Thai people who work in bat caves. Complete nucleotide sequences of the small (S; GenBank: KJ867203), medium (M; GenBank: KJ867204), and large (L; GenBank: KJ867205) RNA genome segments of KKV have been determined.

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of clarified supernatant from Cercopithecus aethiops kidney epithelial cells (Vero E6; ATCC ® CRL-1586™) infected with KKV, PSC-19.

Additional information and tools are available at ViPR (Virus Pathogen Resource).
