Taterapox virus (TATV; also gerbilpox), V71-I-016 was originally isolated from an apparently healthy wild naked-soled gerbil (Tatera kempii, current valid taxonomy Gerbilliscus kempii) caught near Kouandeé in Dahomey (now Benin), West Africa on April 23, 1968. TATV was isolated at the University of Ibadan Virus Research Laboratory by intracerebral inoculation of neonatal mice with liver and spleen homogenate from the captured gerbil. Brain homogenates from ill mice were transferred to the Yale Arbovirus Research Unit and later to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The virus was subsequently passaged in mouse brain, chicken eggs, Vero cells, and BSC40 cells. The exact passage history of TATV, V71-I-016 is unknown.

Among the orthopoxviruses, TATV is most closely related to variola and camelpox viruses. The complete genomic sequence of TATV has been determined (GenBank: DQ437594).

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of cell lysate and supernatant from Cercopithecus aethiops kidney epithelial (BSC40) cells infected with TATV, V71-I-016.
