Anti-MPV Drug Discovery Products

Monkeypox virus (MPV), a zoonotic pathogen, can cause monkeypox disease in both non-human animals and humans. The MPV belongs to a member of the Orthopoxvirus genus within the Poxviridae family. The virus primarily infects the skin and mucous membranes, causing a rash and ulcerations. The infection can be more severe even fatal in some cases. It has mostly affected populations in Central and West Africa. However, MPV has been reported in other parts of the world where the virus has been introduced through human travel or importation of infected animals.

This virion is a large, brick shape with a diameter of approximately 200-250 nm in size and is surrounded by a lipoprotein membrane. The viral particles contain five distinct structures including core, membrane, lateral body, surface tubules, and nucleocapsid. Its genome is a double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) and consists of a central conserved region and two variable regions. The central region encodes structural proteins and essential enzymes while other regions encode proteins involved in host range and pathogenesis. Researchers often use the monkeypox virus as a model for studying poxvirus pathogenesis and developing antiviral drugs and vaccines. At Creative Biolabs, we provide various anti-monkeypox virus antibody products for researchers to aid in their studies.
