These poxviruses include the following genera and examples: Avipoxvirus (fowlpox); Capripoxvirus
(sheep pox, goatpox, and bovine lumpy skin disease); Suipoxvirus (swinepox); and Parapoxvirus (pseudocowpox).
Member viruses of the genus Capripoxvirus (CPV) i.e.
Using the same technique for capripoxvirus, KS-1 strain for expressing F gene of rinderpest virus after being inserted into the thymidine kinase gene region, was able to protect against both LSDV and rinderpest (14).
developed capripoxvirus recombinant vaccines (rCPV) expressing either H or F gene of rinderpest virus.
developed a recombinant capripoxvirus (rCPV) vaccine by inserting F gene of PPRV into the genome of the attenuated capripoxvirus strain KS-1.
A recombinant capripoxvirus vaccine construct expressing a major core structural protein VP7 of Bluetongue virus serotype 1 (BTV-1) was developed.
developed recombinant vaccine construct by inserting the Gn and Gc glycoprotein genes of RVFV into the TK gene locus of KS1 strain of capripoxvirus. The recombinant construct (rKS1/ RVFV) was able to induce protection in terms of production of neutralizing antibodies in both mice and sheep on challenging with virulent RVFV40.
