The early passage history of MVA is complex. The complete genomic sequence of MVA has been determined (GenBank: U94848).

MVA is a highly attenuated strain of vaccinia virus and does not appear to replicate in most mammalian cells. Some experts feel MVA can be handled safely by trained personnel without the need for vaccination.

NR-727 was prepared by inoculation of hamster kidney cells (BHK-21) with VACV, MVA. The virus was purified from a crude cell lysate and supernatant by centrifugation through a 36% sucrose cushion.

A sucrose-purified preparation of BHK-21 cells for use as a control is available as BEI Resources NR-794.

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of NR-727 in TE (pH 7.4).

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