Comments:
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV), SL-15649 was isolated in 2008 from a human serum sample collected from a febrile patient in 2006 in Sri Lanka.

This virus was derived from a molecular clone of CHIKV, SL-15649. The genome sequence of the clone matches that of the original isolate.

Chikungunya fever is a febrile illness often accompanied by relapsing and incapacitating polyarthralgia. In recent years, CHIKV has spread widely throughout Africa and Asia resulting in morbidity in millions of infected individuals. There are currently no recognized antiviral therapies or human vaccines with which to control infections due to CHIKV.

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of cell lysate and supernatant from Cercopithecus aethiops kidney epithelial cells (Vero) infected with CHIKV, SL-15649.

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