Chikungunya virus (CHIKV), LR 2006-OPY1 was isolated from 73-year old male traveler returning to mainland France from Reunion Island, a French Indian Ocean island in 2006, and contributed to WRCEVA by Rémi N. Charrel, Fédération de Microbiologie Clinique Hôpital de la Timone, Unité des Virus Emergents, Faculté de Médecine, Marseilles, France.  In order to remove contaminating mycoplasma, the second viral passage at BEI Resources was performed by lipofectamine-mediated transfection of extracted viral RNA.  The complete genomic sequence of CHIKV, LR 2006-OPY1 has been determined (GenBank:  DQ443544 and KT449801).

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of cell lysate and supernatant from Cercopithecus aethiops kidney epithelial cells (Vero 76, clone E6; ATCC ® CRL-1586™) infected with CHIKV, LR 2006-OPY1.
