Recombinant versions available from our sister company, Absolute Antibody:

Vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) is a well studied, enveloped, negative-strand RNA virus. The VSV genome encodes for 5 proteins: N, P, M, G, and L. The G protein (glycoprotein) is located at the virion surface and is responsible for virus attachment and penetration. Additionally, many lentivrial vectors are pseudotyped with VSV-G from the Indiana serotype.
