Vaccinia Reporter Viruses for Quantifying Viral Function at All Stages of Gene Expression

Article doi: 10.3791/51522

Summary May 15th, 2014

We describe the usage of a fluorescent reporter vaccinia virus that enables real-time measurement of viral infectivity and gene expression through the stage-specific expression of spectrally distinct reporter fluorophores. We detail a plate-based method for accurately identifying the stage at which virus replication is affected in response to small molecule inhibition.
