Zika virus (ZIKV), PRVABC59 was isolated from the blood of a human in Puerto Rico in December 2015.

The complete genomic sequence of ZIKV, PRVABC59 has been determined (GenBank: KU501215). The complete coding sequence of NR-50240 lot 64112564 has also been determined (GenBank: KX087101). The E protein of the tissue culture grown ZIKV PRVABC59 isolate (GenBank: KX087101) has a valine to leucine mutation at position 330 relative to the original patient serum ZIKV PRVABC59 isolate (GenBank: KU501215). The ZIKV, PRVABC59 E-V330L mutant is shown to be less pathogenic in mice, with delayed mortality and decreased viral dissemination to eye and brain as compared to the original ZIKV PRVABC59 serum isolate.

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of cell lysate and supernatant from Cercopithecus aethiops kidney epithelial cells infected with ZIKV, PRVABC59.
