Zika virus belongs to the family Flaviviridae, genus Flavivirus. Zika virus is transmitted primarily by mosquitos, but also can be transmitted through sexual, vertical, and blood transfusion. The E protein is the major surface-exposed antigen of Zika virus, playing an key role in receptor binding during virus entry. This protein is the major target for neutralizing antibodies, and thus the focus of vaccine and anti-viral drug design.
