Eastern equine encepahilitis virus (EEEV), FL93-939 was isolated in Vero cells from a pool of Culiseta melanura mosquitoes collected in Florida in 1993, and passaged once in suckling mouse brains to generate RNA. An infectious cDNA clone of the viral genome was constructed and rescued by electroporation of in vitro transcribed RNA. The complete genome sequence of EEEV, FL93-939 has been determined (GenBank: EF151502).

EEEV is a zoonotic virus transmitted by mosquitoes and originating in birds. The virus can cause severe disease in horses, pigs, dogs, and some bird species. EEEV was first isolated in 1933 from the brains of infected horses in Virginia and New Jersey. Four lineages of EEEV have been defined based on antigenicity and geographic distribution. North American (lineage I) viruses are the most virulent in horses and humans. Human infections are usually asymptomatic, but some progress to severe encephalitis with a high fatality rate. Since horses and humans do not serve as amplifying hosts, infected birds are critical in perpetuating the viral life cycle.

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of cell lysate and supernatant from Cercopithecus aethiops kidney epithelial cells (Vero 76; ATCC ® CCL-1587™) infected with eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV), FL93-939.
