Peptide Tools to Study Zika Virus (ZIKV)

About Zika Virus and other Flaviviruses
Zika virus (ZIKV) belongs to the flaviviruses such as dengue virus, West Nile virus, yellow fever virus, Saint Louis encephalitis virus and tick-borne encephalitis virus. Flaviviruses carry a positive-sense, single-stranded RNA and most flaviviruses are transmitted by the bite from an infected arthropod (mosquito or tick).
We offer specific Zika virus peptides, Zika peptide pools and Zika peptide microarrays (ZIKV peptides, ZIKV peptide pools, ZIKV peptide microarrays).

Zika Virus:
  • Transmitted by the mosquitoes A. aegypti and A. albopictus
  • Was first isolated in 1947 from the Zika Forest of Uganda
  • From 2007 the virus spread across the Pacific Ocean to South America, leading to the Zika virus epidemic
  • Zika virus causes Zika fever or Zika virus disease
  • Usually shows no or only mild symptoms
  • Zika can also spread from a pregnant women to the fetuses
  • Causes microcephaly, severe brain malformations, and other birth defects in unborn children
