The recombinant Vesicular Stomatitis Virus (rVSV-ΔG) reverse genetics pseudotype system is widely used to generate rVSV particles that express the surface glycoprotein protein of a heterologous virus. This is a particularly powerful tool to study viruses that require high level biosafety containment (BSL-3 and BSL-4) such as Coronaviruses and Filoviruses1,2,3, as it generates virus that is restricted to a single round of replication, making them BSL-2 level compatible.
