Zika virus (ZIKV), MEX I-7 was isolated from mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti) collected in Chiapas, Mexico by Ildefonso Fernandez-Salas of the Instituto Nacional De Salud Pública in January 2016, and contributed to WRCEVA by Shannan Rossi of the Department of Pathology, Center for Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, Texas, USA. 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 coding sequence of ZIKV, MEX I-7 has been determined (GenBank: KX247632). The complete genomic sequence of BEI Resources NR-50281, Lot No. 64158312 has also been determined (GenBank: KX446951, ZIKV/Aedes.sp/MEX/MEX_I-7/2016).

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of cell lysate and supernatant from Cercopithecus aethiops kidney epithelial cells (Vero 76, clone E6) infected with ZIKV, MEX I-7.
